The limitations of single wavelength elastic scatter lidar with regard to retrieving various optical or microphysical properties of the observed aerosols are well known. Typical retrieval methodologies rely on elastic scatter information at at least two wavelengths, together with either temporally or geographically inferred estimates of the extinction-to… CONTINUE READING
