Paper Abstract

A new applied differential absorption lidar system for measurement of SO2 and O3 in the lower troposphere is developed. The emission wavelengths 289.04, 288.38 and 299.05 nm are obtained by stimulated Raman shifting of a Nd:YAG laser. The concentrations of SO2 and O3 have been measured quasi-simultaneously by use of the three wavelengths for compensating measurement results each other. The lidar measurements agree with in situ measurements. The measurement errors, which are primarily attributable to statistical error and variations in atmospheric backscattering intensity during the experiment, are discussed.
