A relatively simple balloonborne device for measuring the local aerosol backscatter at multiple wavelengths has been developed and field tested. The instrument produces detailed profiles which are inherently similar to those generated from lidar soundings. It is also sensitive, being able to measure the 20-km stratospheric aerosol background layer with a signal-to-noise ratio of approximately 100:1. An important feature of this device is its ability to be calibrated in an absolute sense… CONTINUE READING
