Abstract:
The software system to process integrated slant path lidar data has been debugged, modified, documented, and improved in reliability and user-friendliness. The substantial data set acquired since 1979 has been processed and a large body of results has been generated. A database has been implemented to store, organize, and access the results. The lidar data set results--the S ratios, the optical depths, and the mixing layer heights are presented. The seasonal dependence of the lidar solution parameters has been explored. The assumptions made in the lidar solution procedure are investigated. The sensitivity of the S ratio and the particulate extinction coefficient to the system calibration constant is examined. The reliability of the calibration constant is demonstrated by examining the particulate to Rayleigh extinction ratio values above the mixing layer.
