Advances in Atmospheric Remote Sensing with Lidar: Selected by Christian J. Grund, Scott P. Sandberg (auth.), Dr. Albert

By Christian J. Grund, Scott P. Sandberg (auth.), Dr. Albert Ansmann, Dr. Roland Neuber, Dr. Patrick Rairoux, Dr. Ulla Wandinger (eds.)

Lidar or laser radar, the depth-resolved distant size of atmospheric parameters with optical potential, has turn into a major software within the box of atmospheric and environmental distant sensing. during this quantity the most recent development within the improvement of lidar equipment, experiments, and functions is defined. The content material is predicated on chosen and punctiliously refereed papers awarded on the 18th foreign Laser Radar convention, Berlin, 22-26 July 1996. The e-book is split into six elements which disguise the subjects of tropospheric aerosols and clouds, lidar in area, wind, water vapor, troposheric hint gases and plumes, and stratospheric and mesospheric profiling. As a complement to primary lidar textbooks this quantity may well function a advisor for scientists, engineers, and graduate scholars throughout the blossoming box of recent lidar strategies and their contribution to atmospheric and environmental research.
