Summary
Abstract: The NARSTO_EPA_SS_BALTIMORE_JHU_LIDAR_DATA measurements were taken from May 2001 to September 2002 during the Baltimore Experiment of the U.S. EPA Particulate Matter Supersites Program by the Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering. A miniature elastic backscatter LIDAR was operated at several Baltimore locations in the vertical mode with typical ... View entire text

Quality Final. Due to an error in the LIDAR system's telemetry data acquisition software, the range values as written in the TDA files (line 13) are incorrect. The software error was discovered post analysis. To properly use the TDA data, a correction factor of 1.25 (linear multiplication) must be applied to obtain the correct range value. That is, instead of 0, 3, 6, 9 ^?4490.89 m, the correct values are 0, 3.75, 7.5, 11.25 ^?5613.6 m.
