Abstract

Remote measurements of trace constituents using an active technique such as lidar have been made possible for the rapid development of powerful tunable laser sources. This paper, originally presented at the OSA Topical Meeting on Optical Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere, in January 1985, illustrates the differential absorption lidar technique used for the measurement of the ozone vertical distribution in the troposphere and the atmosphere.
