Orbiting lidar simulations. 1: Aerosol and cloud measurements by an independent-wavelength technique.

Abstract

Aerosol and cloud measurements are simulated for a space shuttle lidar. Expected errors (in signal, transmission, density, and calibration) are calculated algebraically and checked by simulating measurements and retrievals using random number generators. Vertical resolution is 0.1-0.5 km in the troposphere, 0.5-2.0 km above, except 0.25-1.0 km in… (More)
