<detailed description here>

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,...
