Abstract

To study the ozone spatial and temporal evolution in the atmosphere, lidar systems have proved to be adequate but have remained complex. We define in this paper the main characteristics of a UV DIAL system for ground based and airborne ozone measurements in the troposphere and the lower stratosphere both for daytime and nighttime operation. A multiwavelength lidar system using either Rayleigh/Mie signals or the Raman nitrogen signal, is discussed as a way to efficiently correct the ozone measurements from the systematic bias due to aerosol and other interference gases (i.e. SO2) in the lower troposphere. Two types of lasers (solid state and excimer) are compared, as both lasers are suitable for long term field operation and airborne use.
