A mobile LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) system is being developed and employed for atmosphere remote In this paper, we describe the results obtained using the CSIR-NLC mobile LIDAR in a 23 hour field campaign at the University of Pretoria.
In this paper, we present the obtained first scientific results from CSIR-NLC mobile LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) and its validation/comparison with other ground and space-borne measurements. The LIDAR results are compared using aerosol measurements from the Stratosphere Aerosol Gas Experiment (SAGE) and Optical depth derived from sun-photometer… (More)
