Paper Abstract

Use of airborne DIAL return signals from the Earth's surface in combination with a tomographic data processing technique enables one to essentially lower the sounding radiation power sufficient for effective sensing of the atmosphere. An optical arrangement of sounding and an algorithm of lidar data inversion aimed at reconstruction of two-dimensional fields of atmospheric parameters are proposed. Some results of numerical simulations of the technique are presented.
