Abstract

A new method is proposed based on the analysis of lidar equation which selects aerosol backscatter ratio at a reference point for short range lidar in data processing. Simulation computation and experimental comparison results show that this method is reasonable and feasible. The method is applied to short range lidars, such as atmospheric monitoring lidar-2 (AML-2) and micro-pulse lidar (MPL).
