Sensitivity of lidar equation solution to boundary values and determination of the values
An analytical dependence of the optical depth solution to lidar equation on boundary values was confirmed. According to the dependence this paper analyzed the sensitivity of lidar equation solutions obtained by forward and backward integration algorithms to the boundary values and quantitatively expounded an error limit to the boundary values under a given inversion accuracy. Furthermore, this paper presented a method for determination of the far-end boundary value in the case of inhomcgeneous atmosphere, improving the accuracy of lidar equation solution.
