Paper Abstract

We present a new software toolbox based on LabVIEW, that simulates the return signal of a backscatter lidar. The beam propagates through two different media: a layer, which is enclosed by two parallel planes and a surrounding medium. A large variety of environmental and instrumental conditions can be chosen for the calculation. Multiple scattering can be taken into account. This new version M contains a variety of new modules including a hard target which can be tilted to simulate the effect of pulse extension.
