Abstract:

The effect of collisional line broadening on the accuracy of tropospheric (0–11 km) temperature retrievals from pure rotational Raman lidar raw signals is estimated via numerical simulation. The simulation was performed for three sets of spectral filters with different passbands in a lidar receiving system. A narrow-linewidth laser with a wavelength of 532 nm was considered as a lidar transmitter. A comparative analysis of temperature retrieval errors (calibration errors) produced by using nine calibration functions is presented. The calibration function retrieving tropospheric temperature with the least errors is determined for each set of filters.

Keywords:

Raman scattering, lidar, spectral line broadening, calibration function, tropospheric temperature
