Lidar Measurements from 16th April 2010


Leosphere Aerosol Lidar - Cardington

(scroll down or click here for Elight Aerosol and Ozone Lidar or here for Water Vapour Lidar measurements)


Figure 1: Plot showing how much of transmitted light is reflected back (multiplied by height-squared)


Figure 2: Plot showing where aerosol is reflecting light (backscatter ratio)


Figure 3: Plot showing depolarisation ratio. This indicates the shape of the particles (the higher the ratio the more irregularly-shaped they are).


Elight Aerosol and Ozone Lidar - Aberystwyth


Figure 4: Plot showing backscatter ratio (with similar colour scale to Figure 2)


Figure 5: As Figure 4 but for the whole day.

Water Vapour Lidar - Aberystwyth


Figure 6: Plot showing backscatter ratio with contours of water vapour mixing ratio.
