Abstract

A lidar instrument based on pulsed frequency-doubled carbon-dioxide lasers has been used at 4.88 μm for remote sensing of atmospheric carbon dioxide. A tunable-diode laser spectrometer provided the high-resolution spectroscopic data on carbon-dioxide line strength and line broadening needed for an accurate differential absorption measurement. Initial field measurements are presented, and instrument improvements necessary for accurate carbon dioxide measurement are discussed.

  13. The calculated width is the Voigt width at 0.309 Torr. If a self-broadening coefficient of 0.092 cm−1 atm−1 is used [see Ref. (15)], the Voigt width is 1% larger than the Doppler width. The observed widths averaged 1.5% larger than this calculated Voigt width.
