Paper Abstract

A ground-based lidar system for differential absorption lidar measurements of methane and trace gases in the 1.45 - 4 micrometer wavelength region is described. An optical parametric oscillator pumped by an injection-seeded frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser is employed as a radiation source. The expected minimum detectable range of the system is about 1000 meters for range resolved measurements of methane. The system performance is being tested through measurements of sources of atmospheric methane and aerosols.
