Abstract

A lidar system, incorporating tunable dye lasers and a 25-cm diam Newtonian telescope, has been constructed and applied in atmospheric pollution monitoring. The system, which is fully controlled by a specially designed microcomputer, has been used in several field tests, where stack effluents as well as the ambient air have been monitored. Results from particle, NO2, and SO2 measurements are discussed.
