Paper Abstract

Remote sensing using the satellite borne LIDAR systems are currently providing new features for global atmospheric sensing from space. The LIDAR on board the Cloud Aerosol LIDAR and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) satellite is currently obtaining global aerosol and cloud measurements from space since launched on April 28, 2006. The CALIPSO satellite carries a polarization-sensitive LIDAR system that records backscatter measurements at 532 nm and 1064 nm. In this study, we investigated the stratospheric aerosol backscatter coefficients over Peninsular Malaysia. An initial result of actual data supports that the CALIPSO LIDAR data exhibits sensitivity to the presence of stratospheric aerosol in this study area.
