95 Hardcover Optical engineering TK6592 Written for atmospheric scientists familiar with laser remote sensor (Lidar) theory and operation, this dense volume presents the new femtosecond white light lidar, elastic lidar measurement of the troposphere, and differential absorption lidar methods for monitoring trace gases in the planetary boundary layer.

Similarity theory for the planetary boundary layer of time-dependent height// J.

Surface and atmospheric radiation, precipitation, cloud cover and unresolved turbulent transport in the planetary boundary layer are parameterized.
