Paper Abstract

Attention is given to a ground-based differential absorption lidar system developed and operated at the JPL Table Mountain Facility for measurements of stratospheric ozone concentration profiles from approximately 15 to 20 km altitude. The seasonal variations observed between February 1988 and late 1990 are presented as a function of altitude. For the summer 1989 Stratospheric Ozone Intercomparison Campaign, the lidar measurements were found to agree with the average of the results obtained from seven different instruments over a 14-d period to within 5 percent over the altitude range 18 to 49 km. The status of this instrument is discussed, with emphasis on areas of improvement over the present system.
