Three optical methods for remotely measuring aerosol size distributions.
Author and Affiliation:
Reagan, J. A.
Herman, B. M.(Arizona, University, Tucson, Ariz., United States)
Abstract: Three optical probing methods for remotely measuring atmospheric aerosol size distributions are discussed and contrasted. The particular detection methods which are considered make use of monostatic lidar (laser radar), bistatic lidar, and solar radiometer sensing techniques. The theory of each of these measurement techniques is discussed briefly, and the necessary constraints which must be applied to obtain aerosol size distribution information from such measurements are pointed out. Theoretical and/or experimental results are also presented which demonstrate the utility of the three proposed probing methods.
