Paper Abstract

The lidar systems contribute with privileged information to study environmental pollution due to its capacity to discriminate different atmospheric parameters in time and space. In this work, three of those system were developed at CEILAP laboratory in Argentina (34° 33' S, 58° 30' W): 1) a Multiwavelength lidar to characterized the atmospheric boundary layer and tropospheric aerosols using a Nd:YAG laser (10 Hz, 650 mJ @ 1064 nm); 2) a Raman lidar to measure night-time water vapor profiles, useful as a tracer of air parcel and in understanding energy transport within the atmosphere. This system utilizes an excimer laser (XeCl) (100 Hz, 300 mJ @ 308 nm), and 3) a differential absorption lidar (DIAL) to measure the stratospheric ozone profile. Two laser are used, the same excimer laser of Raman lidar and a Nd:YAG laser (30 Hz, 950 mJ @ 1064 nm). Complementary in situ measurements are also performed with a sun-photometer (AERONET-NASA); UVA, UVB and GUV radiometers (Argentina Solar Monitoring Network), pyranometer and a pyrgeometer. Recent results and the synergy between the actives and passives instruments are showed.
