Lidar or laser radar, the depth-resolved distant dimension of atmospheric parameters with optical skill, has develop into a major 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 functions is defined. The content material relies on chosen and carefully refereed papers provided on the 18th overseas Laser Radar convention, Berlin, 22-26 July 1996. The e-book is split into six components which disguise 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 well function a advisor for scientists, engineers, and graduate scholars in the course of the blossoming box of contemporary lidar innovations and their contribution to atmospheric and environmental research.

5 km. ABL has been studied extensively[2J. The depth of the neutral ABL is estimated by (1) where 'U. he friction velocity, and f is Coriolis parameter. c is the constant of proportionality. Some values of c have been derived under neutral conditions, but their applicable criteria are beyond the scope of this paper. In this work, we evaluate values of c from the observed depth of ABL , 'U* , and f. In Fig. 1, cl derived from the lidar linearly correlates with ct from the temperature inversion. The result confirms that the top of ABL measured by lidar agrees well with the temperature inversion.

Differentiated by examining changes in the vertical structure of Brunt-Vaisala frequency and wind speed and particularly in terms of Scorer parameter. Figure 2 shows a profile of the square of Scorer parameter, [2, based on the upstream conditions in Toulouse. A steep gradient of the Scorer parameter indicates a strong trapping and according to the linear theory [6], significant lee waves are expected at the altitude of the observed aerosol layer. 17 km- 1) are calculated from direct observations, assuming the aircraft speed to be much larger than the GW phase velocity.

Wave structures were observed in this layer as shown on Figure 1. In the wake region, a pronounced sheltering effect drastically reduced low level wind speed and lead to significant wind shear. 3 Comparison of Model Results with Measurements The mesoscale BL structure observed during an intense Tramontane cold-air outbreak in complex orography was analysed using lidar observations and in situ aircraft measurements in conjunction with a zero-order jump model initialised with a on-land sounding [2].
