Paper Abstract

The possibilities for deriving optical and microstructural characteristics of atmospheric aerosols by spectral polarization laser probing have been analyzed. Information about these parameters is determined by the data set of multiple wavelength laser sensing and that of polarization probing signals. This paper presents technical characteristics and structures of multifunctional lidar systems. These systems provide atmospheric probing in a wide spectral range and measuring polarization properties of reflected signals. The experimental results of tropospheric and stratospheric spectral polarization lidar measurements are generalized.
