Paper Abstract

A high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) using a narrow-band frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser and an iodine absorption filter has been developed and used for the observations of aerosols, clouds and temperature profiles at NIES, Tsukuba since December 1997. Examples of the measurements of the cloud and aerosol scattering parameters with this lidar are given in the paper. The results show that the HSRL is capable to provide the quantitative retrieval of the aerosol/cloud scattering properties. This paper also presents the HSRL simultaneous measurements of stratospheric aerosol and temperature profile. Some preliminary results of the stratospheric aerosol and temperature observation at NIES are also given and discussed.
