Paper Abstract

The possibilities are estimated of measuring temperature by the method of elastic molecular scattering of light by a spaceborne lidar. The errors in lidar measurements of temperature in the middle atmosphere in UV spectral range are calculated. The solid-state Nd-YAG laser with irradiation at 3 and 4 harmonics with the wavelengths of 353 and 266 nm was taken as a transmitter of the lidar. The prospectiveness is shown of sounding by the laser at the wavelength of 353 nm, at which the height range from 10 up to 70 km over dark surface of the Earth is covered with measurements. Measurements by means of the laser with the wavelength of 266 nm in the middle atmosphere are practically impossible because of absorption of radiation by ozone.
