Paper Abstract

A lidar system, developed to map atmospheric extinction under the flight path of a P-3 aircraft, was tested during the Key 90 experiment. Using a modified Cassegrainian telescope, the return signals from both wide and narrow field of view are detected. Optical depth and extinction profiles are derived from these signals. The instrument design, data analysis, and measurements from Key 90 are discussed.
