Numerical optimization of multiwavelength UV differential absorption lidar (DIAL) for pollution modeling

The objective of finding the lidar configuration which best matches airshed pollution modeling guided this study. This study detd. which and how many wavelengths (more than the min. no. of 2 could possibly improve measurement accuracy) are the most suited for airshed modeling. Only Raman cell-based emitting systems were considered. The optimization process was performed via a computer simulation of the DIAL (differential absorption lidar) instrument and of representative atm. situations. This simulation certainly does not account for all crit. issues of a field DIAL O3 measurement, but it intends to point out some general principles of importance when making the choice of operating wavelengths.
