Paper Abstract

The investigation of the atmospheric path delay with a dual color satellite laser ranging experiment indicated that the modeling of the water vapor content of the atmosphere may not be sufficient. The need for a measurement of this observable along the line of sight parallel to the satellite ranging operation led to the construction of a Raman scattering experiment. Starting from the existing setup of the Wettzell Laser Ranging System (WLRS) a statistical approach for the performed measurements was chosen. This paper describes the applied technique and compares the obtained results to the theoretical expectations.
