A066:
Lidar Investigations of Greenhouse Gases, Aerosols, and Clouds



Session ID#: 46348

Session Description:
To better predict future trends in climate change, there is a need to measure and understand the temporal and spatial variability of greenhouse gases, aerosols, and clouds on local, regional, and global scales. New laser remote sensing (lidar) techniques have been developed for ground-based, airborne, and space-based platforms for making measurements of greenhouse gases, including CO2, CH4, N2O, H2O and O3, and aerosol and cloud distributions and properties. We solicit papers on the development and demonstration of lidar techniques for making measurements of these key climate variables and their application in conducting climate-related investigations on local-to-global scales.  Papers are also solicited on modeling the performance and impact of future lidar systems for making measurements to improve our understanding of important climate variables.
