Title: Lidar system implementation and development for novel Romanian systems

Abstract: The LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) technique is based on the interaction of a laser beam with atmospheric compounds (molecules, gases, clouds) via elastic-inelastic or resonant-nonresonant processes (scattering, absorption, fluorescence), relative to the radiation of the laser beam. By analyzing the detected backscattered radiation, suitable at many wavelengths, several parameters can be recovered, with relatively high space-time resolution: optical properties of the atmosphere (e.g. backscatter-extinction coefficients of aerosols and clouds), atmospheric concentrations (e.g. ozone, water vapor), and atmospheric parameters (e.g. temperature, wind). The article is focusing on the characterization of a LIDAR system and also on verifying the accuracy of information supplied. This scope is achieved by means of the information generated through the HYSPLIT (HYbrid Single-Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory) model, compared with information from satellite data.
