Estimation of the Error of Lidar Measurements of the Concentration of Hydrogen Sulfide in the Atmosphere
The error of measurement of hydrogen sulfide concentration ranging from 1010–1014 cm–3 in the atmosphere by Raman lidar as well as differential absorption and scattering lidar at distances up to 2 km was estimated. It was shown that Raman lidar over measurement time of 100 sec can record such concentration of the studied molecules in atmosphere with a relative error of no more than 20% for the entire range of distances, and for differential absorption and scattering lidar at the wavelength of 3.83 μm the relative measurement error lies in the range of 20–26%.
