Abstract:

The paper discusses the possibilities of remote laser monitoring of water vapor in the troposphere at the sensing channels of the Siberian Lidar Station (SLS) using Raman backscattering signals. We describe the UV modified sensing channel of SLS and consider the problem of efficient cutoff of the Rayleigh line wing of exciting radiation. The first profiles of water vapor vertical distribution in the troposphere obtained at SLS are presented.
