Ozone flux measurements in the troposphere with a shot per shot DIAL instrument operated in the UV spectral region during the MEDCAPHOT campaign

The first combined reconstruction of range-resolved wind velocities and O3 concns. is presented from the anal. of a single DIAL data set analyzed with a correlation method to det. wind speeds. The system can be used for the measurement of a unique component of the wind velocity with an accuracy comparable to that of stand-alone fixed beam correlation lidar instruments. A photochem. model is also developed to predict the spatio-temporal evolution of O3 concns., originated by both chem. and transport effects.
