Paper Abstract

In this paper a multiwavelength (355, 532, and 1064 nm) lidar sounding across a stack plume has been computer simulated. The lidar data were then inverted using four different procedures proposed by: Klett, Evans, Potter and Grabowski. Results of these inversions were dependent on both: dust particle size dispersion and mass concentration. It has been shown that Grabowski's iterative procedure retrieves a plume dust concentration profile with a reasonable accuracy and seem to be (as it does not require assumption on a backscatter- extinction ratio) advantageous to others.
