Paper Abstract

A review of the history and current state of atmospheric sensing lidar from Earth orbit was conducted and it was found that space based earth remote sensing is still in its infancy with only one limited success extended duration autonomous mission to date. An analysis of the basic requirements for some candidate geo-stationary lidar concepts was completed and it was concluded that significant basic work is required in all areas of lidar development.
