Paper Abstract

We briefly discuss the characters of aerosol profiles in the marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) detected by a high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) system developed by Ocean University of China. In this 532-nm lidar system, an iodine filter is used to reject the Mie scattering signal and extract the Rayleigh signal. We deduce the aerosol scattering ratio (Rb) by the HSRL and analyze the correlation index of Rb and relative humidity (RH) under different weather conditions. The height of MABL is derived from the Rb profiles using a wavelet method.
