Sea-breeze dynamics in southern France is investigated using an airborne Doppler lidar, a meteorological surface station network and radiosoundings, in the framework of the ESCOMPTE experiment conducted during summer 2001 in order to evaluate the role of thermal circulations on pollutant transport and ventilation. The airborne Doppler lidar WIND contributed(More)
An optical technique is described that determines the path-averaged value of a refractive-index structure parameter at 10.6 microm by use of a pulsed coherent CO(2) lidar in direct detection and hard-target returns. The lidar measurements are compared with measurements taken by a 0.9-microm scintillometer and temperature probe (with humidity corrections).(More)
A four-element photomixer receiver has been tested in a 10-mum heterodyne Doppler lidar. It addresses a reduction of the variance of the power scattered off distributed aerosols targets at ranges as long as 8 km. An improvement in performance is expected when the four independent signals recorded on every single shot are combined. Two summation techniques(More)
