Airborne lidar sounding of short-lived aerosol clusters
- 27 Downloads
Airborne lidar sounding of aerosol clusters by a laser beam sent forward in the aircraft flight direction is considered. Observability of the temporal evolution of short-lived (from a few to tens of seconds) aerosol clusters with horizontal scales from a few hundreds to a few thousands of meters are shown by numerical simulation. It is shown that, unlike stationary lidar observations, airborne lidars allow the evolution of aerosol clusters to be analyzed without involving additional hypotheses about their spatial and temporal structure.
