A method for estimating the stratospheric particle size distribution from multiwavelength lidar measurements is presented. It is based on matching measured and modelsimulated backscatter coefficients. The lidar backscatter coefficients measured at the three commonly used wavelengths 355, 532 and 1064 nm are compared to a precomputed lookup table of model-calculated values. The optical model assumes that particles are spherical and that their size distribution is unimodal. This inverse problem… CONTINUE READING
