Development of a multiple-field-of-view multiple-scattering polarization lidar: comparison with cloud radar.

Abstract

We developed a multiple-field-of-view multiple-scattering polarization lidar (MFMSPL) to study the microphysics of optically thick clouds. Designed to measure enhanced backscattering and depolarization ratio comparable to space-borne lidar, the system consists of four sets of parallel and perpendicular channels mounted with different zenith angles… (More)
