High Spectral Resolution Lidar Temperature Profiling: Progress and Challenges
 

Ed Eloranta and Ilya Razenkov

University of Wisconsin Madison

 

Researchers have long considered the possibility of deriving temperature profiles from the spectral width of the molecular lidar returns. Schwiesow and Lading(NCAR) proposed this a 1981 paper while John Hair(CSU) described actual measurements in 2001.  Unfortunately, derivation of useful temperature profiles requires a level of measurement precision which is difficult to achieve and the technique has not proven practical. Improving

lidar technology warrants another look at this approach. This presentation describes progress and challenges in our effort to measure temperature profiles with the University of Wisconsin High Spectral Resolution lidar.
