Time-height sections of attenuated backscatter coefficients at 532/1064nm, and volume depolarization ratio at 532 nm. Attenuated backscatter coefficient is estimated using results of inversion with Fernald's method(S1=50sr). Definition of depolarization ratio is S/P. Resolutions are 10 min and 30 m.
JAMSTEC / BPPT joint cruise in the Indonesian waters.
Attenuated backscatter coefficients include both of backscatter from molecules and aerosols. They are attenuated by two-way transmittance between the lidar and the target air volume. There is no special treatment above clouds etc.
When lidar data is published, include at least one of scientists in NIES lidar team.
NIES dual wavelength polarization lidar
Dual wavelengths laser pulses are emitted into zenith, and scattered light from scatterers in the atmosphere is received by a telescope. Both of time difference from laser emission and light intensity are recorded.
