Paper Abstract

In the quest for a better understanding of climate change, greater importance is attached to monitoring the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide to gain an improved knowledge of sources and sinks. Remote sensing is a critical tool in this research area and differential absorption lidar (DIAL) is one important technique. The laser is the critical component of a DIAL instrument. This paper describes the development of a laser source for the detection and measurement of carbon dioxide.
