Paper Abstract

We report on the development of a low-cost differential absorption lidar (DIAL) for profiling water vapour in the lower atmosphere. It uses diode lasers in the 830nm region, differing from previously constructed water DIAL systems in having a double master laser design with active stabilisation of both wavelengths. We present measurements of backscatter coefficients of aerosols over Adelaide that feed into a sensitivity analysis, as well as initial DIAL measurements.
