Remote sensing for air quality management
There is now, and will continue to be, a need for understanding atmospheric processes in connection with the transport and conversion of pollutants from both natural and man-made sources. Not only is the lower atmosphere which we breathe important, but so is the upper atmosphere which contains gases and particles which affect the spectrum and intensity of solar radiation impinging on the Earth's surface. A case has been made here for the use of laser remote-sensing techniques for achieving some of the monitoring goals associated with model development and atmospheric surveillance. Specific monitoring techniques based on the use of laser radiation will be considered in detail in the following chapters.
