Paper Abstract

The paper presents the analysis of the estimate of the errors in lidar measurements of the density of the middle atmosphere. The lidar with wavelengths 355 and 266 nm is considered. The lidar is arranged onboard the Russian module (RM) of ISS module with the window diameter 100 cm. The task is to measure the atmospheric density in the altitude range 40 – 100 km above the Earth’s surface. It is shown that measurements at the wavelength of 355 nm can be carried out with the error less than 10% in the altitude range 30 – 88 km any time of day. Measurements of the atmospheric density at the wavelength of 266 nm can be realized in the altitude range 40 – 100 km with the error less than 10% at the boundaries and 2% in the central part of the range any time of day.
