Paper Abstract

In this paper we present the work carried out at the University of Calabria regarding a prototype of a dial system. This has been realized for remote pollution monitoring. Most of the effort have been done to perform several measurements on an horizontal path in order to scan the wide surrounding area. The concentrations of ozone and water vapor have been carried out using two different methods both related with the dial technique. With the integrated one average concentrations have been evaluated up to 5 km using topographical targets. In the range resolution technique profile of ozone and water vapor have been performed up to 700 m with a spatial resolution of about 30 m. Although the system needs a revision in several subsystem of its set up, the experimentation has pointed out the performances available and the necessary improvements.
