Abstract:

In the present paper, the potential capabilities of lidar measurements of the atmospheric density in the middle atmosphere are analyzed. Calculations are performed for a lidar with quite moderate specifications: transmitter comprising a solid Nd:YAG-laser with a wavelength of 532 nm, pulse energy of 0.8 J, and repetition frequency of 20 Hz; and receiving system comprising primary mirrors with radii of 0.3 and 0.5 m, field-of-view angles of 0.1 and 1 mrad, and spectral widths of the filter of 0.5, 1, and 10 nm. The signal acquisition time is 10 min for spatial resolution of 1 km. Three sensing options are analyzed: from the ground level, from an aircraft (at 10-km flight altitude), and from an ISS with orbit altitude of 414 km.

Keywords:
