Abstract

Multiple scattering corrections for space and airborne laser remote sensing of the atmosphere and surface The Geoscience Laser Altimeter System is an atmospheric lidar and surface altimeter to be launched in late 2002. An essential part of the surface and atmospheric analysis is correction for cloud and aerosol multiple scattering. Calculations and algorithms have been developed applicable nadir laser sensing.
