Passive Aerosol And Water Vapor Measurements.

passive aerosol measurements  water vapor measurements
Atmospheric aerosol and water vapor affect a variety of processes including the earth's albedo, the earth's green house effect, cloud precipitation efficiency, visibility, and environmental quality. The radiative effects of these variable atmospheric constituents can have a major impact on regional and global scale climate.

Lidar Measurements.
LIDAR measurements   
Lidar (LIght Detection And Ranging) is used to study the properties of the atmosphere using a laser light source and collecting light scattered from atmospheric aerosol and molecules. Further details can be viewed at http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/lidar.
