Paper Abstract

The integral solutions of lidar equation commonly in use for sounding of inhomogeneous aerosols still suffer from the fact of a priori assumed relationship between backscattering and extinction coefficients. It has necessitated the development of new integral solutions of lidar equation. Multipositional lidar techniques are based on sounding of investigated atmospheric volume from different points in space. Unlike traditional techniques, these techniques give possibility to find a posteriori relationship between measured coefficients. The simulations of the statistical errors were performed for multipositional schemes of lidar sounding. New approach appears as a result of the error calculation to be effective one for a variety of typical atmospheric scenarios.
