Abstract

An assessment is made of the role the various error sources play in limiting the accuracy of infrared differential absorption lidar measurements used for the remote sensing of atmospheric species. An overview is presented of the relative contribution of each error source including the inadequate knowledge of the absorption coefficient, differential spectral reflectance, and background interference as well as measurement errors arising from signal fluctuations.

For a given target roughness the cross correlation is a function of the difference in the propagation vectors of the two laser beams which can arise from differences in the frequencies or angles of incidence of the beams.See J.
