Paper Abstract

A combined active-passive remote sensing system has been developed to study atmospheric radiation and cirrus cloud radiative properties at the NOAA Mauna Loa Observatory on the island of Hawaii. The active portion of this system is an eye-safe, dual-polarization lidar, while the passive portion is a Fourier transform spectro-radiometer operating in emission mode. The combined system allows unattended, remote measurements of infrared atmospheric emission and clouds with depolarization discrimination of ice and liquid.
