Raymetrics Raman Lidar

Mentor: N.N.


The Raymetrics raman lidar provides continuous (24/7), unattended day and night temperature, water vapor, backscatter coefficient and extinction profiling within the atmospheric boundary layer, through the entrainment zone and into the free troposphere, at a fixed location.

The system can measure the following parameters:

  • Atmospheric temperature profile
  • Water vapor mixing ratio profile
  • Aerosol extinction, backscatter
  • Depolarization coefficient profiles



  • If you are interested in receiving data please contact the instrument mentor: N.N.
