Paper Abstract

The NASA Langley Research Center and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, have collaborated to design, build and fly a combination backscatter and Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) instrument for the measurement of aerosols, temperature and ozone from the NASA DC-8. The AROTAL (Airborne Raman Ozone Temperature and Aerosol Lidar) instrument was flown on two separate Arctic missions to look at ozone loss processes during the late winter-early spring, and to validate measurements made by the SAGE III satellite instrument. Results from this instrument have demonstrated that the SAGE III instrument is in agreement with the lidar retrievals to better than ten per cent.
