Summary
Abstract: Dr. Eberhard and his associates are studying the information on clouds
uniquely available from CO2 lidar, which operates in the 9-11
micrometer wavelength range. Techniques are being developed to
measure mean (or effective) radius of cloud drop size distributions,
and discriminate between water and ice clouds using
wavelength-dependent backscatter and extinction. Cloud dynamics using
Doppler ... View entire text
