Title: Essentials of multiangle data-processing methodology for smoke polluted atmospheres

Author: Kovalev, Vladimir; Petkov, A.; Wold, Cyle; Urbanski, Shawn; Hao, WeiMin;

Date: 2011

Source: Romanian Journal of Physics. 56(3-4): 520-529.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Essentials for investigating smoke plume characteristics with scanning lidar are discussed. Particularly, we outline basic principles for determining dynamics, heights, and optical properties of smoke plumes and layers in wildfire-polluted atmospheres. Both simulated and experimental data obtained in vicinities of wildfires with a two-wavelength scanning lidar are considered.

Keywords: scanning lidar, smoke-polluted atmosphere, measurement methodology
