Lidar measurement of atmospheric aerosol extinction profiles: a comparison between two techniques-Klett inversion and pure rotational Raman scattering methods

Two lidar methods of determining an atmospheric extinction coefficient profile are compared. The methods are the Klett inversion method for elastic lidar return and the log-derivative method for rotational Raman backscattered signal processing. The comparison includes numerical modeling and processing of lidar measurements when both the elastic and the rotational Raman backscattered signals are measured simultaneously. The suggested idea is that such a comparison can be used as a criterion for the reliability of the results of lidar measurements, similar to the comparison between the results of lidar and contact measurements.
