Paper Abstract

This paper presents a discussion of some methodological aspects of interpreting data that could be obtained with a spaceborne single frequency lidar. The case is considered when the lidar return signals are recorded in analog regime. Some possibilities of using such data in combination with the data obtained using passive techniques of sounding the atmosphere are also discussed in this paper. We also present in this paper some results of a closed numerical experiment on sensing stratiformis and some types of the underlying surface with a lidar from space. Interpretation of data obtained with a spaceborne range finder is also discussed.
