Shown is a 24-hr series of aerosol backscatter coefficient and ozone concentration profiles measured by a scanning, multiwavelength ultraviolet lidar from aboard a ship near Houston during the Texas Air Quality Study II experiment in August 2006. The profiles are composites of data from several elevation angles and start close to the surface, allowing a more complete study of surface layer processes and comparison with in situ instruments than if only vertical lidar data were used. For lidar details and other applications, see the paper by Machol et al., pp. 512-524.
