Paper Abstract

The paper refers to novel aspects of application of the laser radar (LIDAR) to differential absorption spectroscopy and atmospheric gas monitoring, accenting on the advantages of the class of powerful pulsed laser diodes. The implementation of the task for determination of atmospheric humidity, which is a major green house gas, and the set demands of measurement match well the potential of the acquisition system. The projected system is designed by transmission of the operations to Digital Signal Processing (DSP) module allowing preservation of the informative part of the signal by real-time pre-processing and following post-processing by personal computer.
