Abstract:

A technique for lidar sensing of aerosol plumes aiming at estimation of the point stationary source capacity is considered. Influence of atmospheric turbulence on the accuracy of lidar measurements of aerosol concentration integral parameters is studied. The measurement error is shown to be determined by the first- and second-order statistical moments of the contaminant concentration integral along the sensing path. The error depends on turbulence parameters, distance between the sensing flow part and the contaminant source, as well as instants of pulsing and coordinates of sensing beams.
