Paper Abstract

We have been developing a bistatic imaging lidar using a high sensitive CCD camera with an image intensifier as a high speed shutter for measuring spatial distributions of aerosols, fogs and clouds in the lower atmosphere at daytime as well as at nighttime. The bistatic imaging lidar was applied to two field observation campaigns. One was made cooperatively with a wind profiler and a radiosonde at Moriya (36 km north of Tokyo) for five days from May 26 to 30, 1997 and another cooperatively with a monostatic lidar at Hakuba alpine ski area of Nagano for 10 days from February 7 to 16, 1998 during the period of the 18th Winter Olympic Games in Japan. We report the results obtained at both campaigns and discuss the ability of this system in measuring the meteorological features of the local lower atmosphere under different conditions.
