Paper Abstract

Results of a study dealing with the conceptual design of a spaceborne atmospheric lidar instrument (ATLID) are presented. ATLID is designed to operate on the Polar Platform, a future earth-observation satellite. ATLID yields data on the height, strength, and depolarization properties of scattering layers (i.e., clouds, planetary boundary layer) in the lower atmosphere.
