Paper Abstract

We have constructed the lidar facility for survey of atmospheric structure over troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere and low thermosphere over Kototabang (100.3E, 0.2S), Indonesia in the equatorial region. The lidar system consists of the Mie and Raman lidars for tropospheric aerosol, water vapor and cirrus cloud measurements, the Rayleigh lidar for stratospheric and mesospheric temperature measurements and the Resonance lidar for metallic species such as Na, Fe, Ca ion measurements and temperature measurements in the mesopause region. The laser system included in this lidar facility consists of three pulsed Nd:YAG lasers, a pulsed Ti:Sapphire laser seeded by a ring Ti:Sapphire laser and a dye laser. And, the receiving system consists of a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with 20cm diameter, a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with 35cm diameter and five Newtonian telescopes with 45cm diameter. The most parts of this lidar system are remotely controlled via the Internet from Tokyo Metropolitan University (TMU) in Japan.
