THE CALIPSO MISSION: A Global 3D View of Aerosols and Clouds
Aerosols and clouds have important effects on Earth's climate through their effects on the radiation budget and the cycling of water between the atmosphere and Earth's surface. Limitations in ourExpand
Urban boundary-layer height determination from lidar measurements over the paris area.
TLDR
This work presents methods suited for precise determination of the ABL structure's temporal evolution in a dynamic environment as complex as the Paris area and compares commonly used methods that permit ABL height retrievals from backscatter lidar signals under different meteorological conditions.

LIDAR DETERMINATION OF THE ENTRAINMENT ZONE THICKNESS AT THE TOP OF THE UNSTABLE MARINE ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYER
The thickness of the entrainment zone at the top of the marine atmosphericboundary layer (MABL) has been documented by an airborne lidar on twoconsecutive days during a cold-air outbreak episode overExpand
OBSERVATIONS OF HORIZONTALLY ORIENTED ICE CRYSTALS IN CIRRUS CLOUDS WITH POLDER-1/ADEOS-1
Abstract Optical and radiative properties of cirrus clouds need to be accurately described at global scale in order to correctly estimate the radiative impact of ice clouds. The orientation of iceExpand
Classification of particle effective shape ratios in cirrus clouds based on the lidar depolarization ratio.
TLDR
A ray-tracing code has been developed to simulate backscattered and depolarized lidar signals from cirrus clouds made of hexagonal-based crystals with various compositions and optical depth, taking into account multiple scattering. Expand
ADM-Aeolus retrieval algorithms for aerosol and cloud products
ADM-Aeolus, the wind Lidar under development at ESA, is a High Spectral Resolution Lidar that additionally provides separated information on particles (Mie channel) and molecules (Rayleigh channel).Expand
THE ATMOSPHERIC DYNAMICS MISSION FOR GLOBAL WIND FIELD MEASUREMENT
The prime aim of the Atmospheric Dynamics Mission is to demonstrate measurements of vertical wind profiles from space. Extensive studies conducted by the European Space Agency over the past 15 yearsExpand
Vertical 2-μm Heterodyne Differential Absorption Lidar Measurements of Mean CO2 Mixing Ratio in the Troposphere
Abstract Vertical mean CO2 mixing ratio measurements are reported in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and in the lower free troposphere (FT), using a 2-μm heterodyne differential absorption lidarExpand
The Experimental Cloud Lidar Pilot Study (ECLIPS) for cloud-radiation research
Abstract The Experimental Cloud Lidar Pilot Study (ECLIPS) was initiated to obtain statistics on cloud-base height, extinction, optical depth, cloud brokenness, and surface fluxes. Two observationalExpand
Comparison between the atmospheric boundary layer in Paris and its rural suburbs during the ECLAP experiment
The ECLAP experiment has been performed during the winter of 1995 in order to study the influence of the urban area of Paris on the vertical structure and diurnal evolution of the atmosphericExpand
