Paper Abstract

A combined Raman and elastic-backscatter lidar for independent profiling of tropospheric aerosols, moisture, and ozone and aerosol parameters is presented. GKSS operates this advanced Raman lidar at Geesthacht, Germany. First routine ozone measurements were taken between February and April 1995, Simultaneously with the European SESAME (Second European Stratospheric Arctic and Mid-latitude Experiment) campaign. The transmitter contains two lasers, a XeCl excimer laser and a frequency-tripled Nd:YAG laser. The received backscattered light is separated in an eight-cahnnel filter polychromator and detected by photomultipliers in single-photon counting mode. Ozone concentrations and aerosol and moisture profiles are obtained by applying the Raman-DIAL and conventional DIAL and the Raman lidar technique, respectively. Aerosol and moisture profiles and derived by applying the common Raman technique. Examples of the measured aerosol, ozone, moisture, and temperature profiles are shown.
