Abstract

The High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) system was developed at the University of Wisconsin* to remotely measure optical properties of the atmosphere. The extinction cross section, the aerosol to molecular backscatter ratio and the backscatter to extinction ratio are measured without assumptions regarding aerosol scattering characteristics. The HSRL is both eyesafe (range >200 m) and capable of daylight operation. It has operated in both aircraft and ground based studies.
