Summary
Abstract: The lidar profiles density, temperature, wind velocity and aerosol loading from the lower troposphere to the upper mesosphere, depending on operating mode.

Two main measurement techniques are employed. Firstly, traditional Rayleigh backscatter analysis yields temperature profiles above the top of the stratospheric aerosol layer (greater than about 27km altitude). The temperatures are obtained ... View entire text

Quality Data collected by the LIDAR system include the density, temperature, wind velocity and aerosol loading as a function of altitude from near the ground (typically, above about 15 km altitude) to the upper mesosphere. The spatial and temporal resolutions of the data depend on the operating mode of the lidar, time of day, and local meteorological conditions.
