Paper Abstract

Integral methods of lidar determination of atmospheric optical parameters are discussed in this paper. The integral solutions of lidar equation commonly in use for sounding of inhomogeneous atmosphere suffer from the fact of a priori assumed optical properties of the medium. It has necessitated the development of new multiposition techniques of lidar sounding. K-position lidar techniques are based on sounding of investigated atmospheric volume from different points in space, along the paths, making up a closed polygon in intersection. Unlike traditional methods, new methods give a posteriori possibility of the estimation of the results' reliability. The simulations of the statistical and systematic errors were performed for multiposition schemes of lidar sounding. New approaches appear as a result of the errors in calculations, to be effective for a variety of typical atmospheric scenarios. The additional effectiveness of the method is connected with combining of traditional and multiposition lidar sounding schemes.
