Paper Abstract

Aerosols are difficult to measure and model in the atmosphere because of their complex variability in space and time. Lidar systems offer excellent capabilities for studying atmospheric aerosols because of their ability to remotely monitor large volumes of the atmosphere from a single site with very high spatial and temporal resolution. This paper presents an overview of current lidar applications for aerosol measurements. The present status of such work is summarized and the advantages and limitations of lidar are discussed.
