Paper Abstract

We describe detailed performance characteristics of NOAA's pulsed, coherent, hybrid TEA, CO2 Doppler lidar. Included are acoustically generated inter-pulse frequency jitter of the hybrid cavity, on-line center and off-line center plasma-generated intra-pulse chirp, and transmitter-receiver feed-through isolation. Data processing and display are discussed. Data taken in the clear atmosphere into the stratosphere, including VAD scans For mesoscale convergence, are presented, as well as calibration procedures.
