Paper Abstract

A lidar system capable of simultaneous measurement of Raman and Mie-Rayleigh scattering was constructed, and used for measurement of 03, water vapor, and aerosols in the lower troposphere. 03 concentration measurement was performed by differential absorption of N2 and 02 Raman scattering signals with the lidar transmitter operating at 280.0 nm, and also by differential absorption of Mie-Rayleigh scattering and of N2 Raman scattering with the transmitter operating at 279.5 nm and 280.5 nm on alternate pWses. Water vapor profiles were obtained as the mix ing ratio relative to N2 using the N2 and H20 Raman scattering signals with the lidar transmitter operating at 280.0 nm. Simultaneous measurement of H20 Raman scattering and Mie scattering over a continuous period of about 13 hours showed that the lidar system can identify uncondensed water vapor and condensed water vapor by comparison of temporal and spatial variations of the water vapor mixing ratio and of the Mie backscattering coefficient.
