Atmospheric lidar - Room2: 15h45-17h15
Laurent Lombard, Senior Scientist at Onera, Palaiseau, France
Lidars or laser radars are increasingly used in the study of atmosphere or for aircraft safety. This tutorial is an introduction to lidar technologies and their applications.
- Overview of various Lidar technologies and configurations for atmospheric applications: coherent and incoherent lidars, elastic and inelastic lidars, differential absorption (DIAL) lidars,...
- a few examples of atmospheric lidar applications: analysis of aerosols, CO2 monitoring, wind profilers, turbulence monitoring,...
