Abstract

Measurements of stratospheric vertical ozone distribution have been made with a Xe–Cl laser based on the differential absorption lidar technique. The effect of stratospheric aerosols observed by a frequency-doubled Nd:YAG lidar on the measured ozone density is corrected. Fourteen data sets were obtained at Fukuoka (33°N) from September to December 1979. The ozone profiles obtained in an altitude range of 15–25 km are in good agreement with those measured by ozonesondes. The Xe–Cl lidar is promising for the continuous monitoring of stratospheric ozone concentration.
