Abstract

A systematic program of observing atmospheric backscatter β profiles from 4 to 16-km above sea level is described. Initial monthly averages indicating a lognormal distribution are presented. Cirrus prevalence, volcanic layers in the stratosphere, diurnal effects, convection, calibration, and absorption effects are discussed as well.
