Paper Abstract

A pattern recognition model for aerosol classification with atmospheric backscatter lidars is proposed and studied in detail. The theoretical framework and the implementation process of the proposed model are presented. Computer simulations have been carried out to verify the practicability and robustness of this model. The k-fold cross-validation method is employed in the process of classifier designing to choose the proper decision rule, which is mainly based on statistical pattern recognition theory. At the same time, the validity of the model is evaluated. The generalized self-validation is also carried out in the computer simulations to verify the stability of the model. The analysis of the performances in reduced status, especially the instance of application to Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization, demonstrates the generalization ability and performance of this model.
