Polar Stratospheric Cloud Measurements by Multispectral Lidar at Sodankylä in Winter 1994/95
- 316 Downloads
Lidar measurements at 4 wavelengths and two polarizations were performed during the SESAME campaign in Sodankylä, Finland (67.37N, 26.65E). Using the wavelength dependence of the particle scattering the aerosol size distribution and the refractive index of the PSC particles were retrieved. A liquid PSC with a refractive index of 1.36 could be observed. We assume that this PSC consists of ternary solution particles in contradiction to the NAT-hypothesis.
