Remote sensing of the tropical rain forest boundary layer using pulsed Doppler lidar

  title={Remote sensing of the tropical rain forest boundary layer using pulsed Doppler lidar},
  author={Guy N Pearson and F J Davies and Clare Collier},
Within the framework of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Oxidant and Particle Photochemical Processes (OP3) project, a pulsed Doppler lidar was deployed for a 3 month period in the tropical rain forest of Borneo to remotely monitor vertical and horizontal transport, aerosol distributions and clouds in the lower levels of the atmosphere. The Doppler velocity measurements reported here directly observe the mixing process and it is suggested that this is the most appropriate… CONTINUE READING
