Title: Arctic Micro-Pulse Lidar Measurement
Description:
Abstract:
Micro-pulse lidar (MPL, NASA upgraded SESI model) placed at AWIPEV Station (at Rabben Station until 4 June 2003) in Ny-Alesund, Svalbard acquires backscatter profiles on a 24-hour operation basis. Laser wavelength: 523.5 nm, Maximum height: 60 km, Range resolution: 30 m, Time resolution: 1 min, Pointing direction: 45 deg slant at Rabben and vertical at AWIPEV. Processed data (Level 1.0) and their quick look images are available from NASA MPLNET website at http://mplnet.gsfc.nasa.gov/.
