Abstract

This paper describes a practical method for determination of the geometrical form factor in the laser radar equation. Based on the laser radar equation and the statistical homogeneity in the spatial aerosol distribution, the factor can be calculated from the field observations by laser radar. Some examples of correction by this factor are also presented.
