Paper Abstract

Optical and laser remote sensing techniques provide powerful tools for environmental monitoring in particular for determination of concentrations of atmospheric pollutants .TheifferentiaI absorption and catteiing (DAS) lidar method is very well suited and widely used to measure from ground conceniration of e.g. 502, NO2, NO and O316. The available systems are mainly stationary in laboratories of research institutes and few of them are now mobile, mounted on trucks and trailers. ARGOS (advanced remote gaseous Qxide ensor) is based on many years experimental experience in the area of remote air pollution measurements of the in Geesthacht, a resaerch institute located in the vincinity of Hamburg. In this paper the objectives, specifications and realization of a vanboine air pollution measurement system will be presented based on advanced electro-optical and computer equipment as well as on a wind profile sensor. The emphasis of the development is to realize a mobile and operational system not to verify applied methods and techniques.
