Advances in Atmospheric Remote Sensing with Lidar: Selected by Christian J. Grund, Scott P. Sandberg (auth.), Dr. Albert

By Christian J. Grund, Scott P. Sandberg (auth.), Dr. Albert Ansmann, Dr. Roland Neuber, Dr. Patrick Rairoux, Dr. Ulla Wandinger (eds.)

Lidar or laser radar, the depth-resolved distant size of atmospheric parameters with optical potential, has develop into a tremendous software within the box of atmospheric and environmental distant sensing. during this quantity the most recent growth within the improvement of lidar equipment, experiments, and purposes is defined. The content material is predicated on chosen and carefully refereed papers provided on the 18th foreign Laser Radar convention, Berlin, 22-26 July 1996. The e-book is split into six elements which hide the themes of tropospheric aerosols and clouds, lidar in area, wind, water vapor, troposheric hint gases and plumes, and stratospheric and mesospheric profiling. As a complement to primary lidar textbooks this quantity may perhaps function a consultant for scientists, engineers, and graduate scholars during the blossoming box of contemporary lidar innovations and their contribution to atmospheric and environmental research.

Examples of temporal change of (1 and 8 on fair-weather days are shown in Fig. 3. Note that the vertical scale of 8 is magnified. The corresponding surface meteorological data are shown in Fig. 4. Although the behavior of the ABL varied fairly day by day, the following general features were observed: In the early morning, the height of the mixed layer was about 500 m and the visibility was a few km. The mixed layer grew up to about 1,500 m around 13 h. As sea-breeze blew dominantly in theafiernoon, the visibility became much better; (1 became smaller in the lower atmosphere.

This modelled flux ratio accounting for TKE production terms related to GW is in better agreement with the measured value of A Rv . 6 Concl usion We have tested Stull's parametrization of the entrainment zone in the wake of the Pyrenees during Tramontane event. In that region large convective structure were observed at the BL top in relation with lee waves. Eventhough lee waves are likely to be generated by non-linear wave-wave interactions, they are predicted by the linear theory and the resulting GW drag on the MABL growth could be parametrized using a linear model.

2 Observations Data were collected over the Mediterranean sea during the PYRenees EXperiment (PYREX) on 5 November 1990 [1). This time of year is favourable for the observation of strong meridian winds such as the Tramontane, bringing cold air over the warmer sea. Two instrumented aircraft, the Merlin IV and the French Atmospheric and Remote Sensing Research Aircraft (ARAT) made co-ordinated flights over the Mediterranee, following BL air masses trajectories. Observations of the Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer (MABL) structure, made by the airborne backscatter lidar LEANDRE 1 [5], flown onboard the ARAT, revealed an abrupt change in convective structure size at the MABL A.
