System description of the mobile LIDAR of the CSIR, South Africa
AbstractSouth Africa's first mobile LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging)
system is being developed at the National Laser Centre (NLC) of the
Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in Pretoria
(25Â°45'S; 28Â°17'E). The system is designed primarily for remote
sensing of the atmosphere. At present, the system is being optimised
for measuring vertical atmospheric backscatter profiles of aerosols
and clouds. In this paper, we describe the complete LIDAR system,
including laser transmission, telescope configuration, data acquisition,
data archival and post-processing.
