Abstract

We report the features and the performances of the algorithms, developed at the Lidar Station of L'Aquila, for retrieving atmospheric parameters and constituents from elastic lidar signals. The algorithm for ozone retrieving is discussed in detail and checked with model lidar signals to take into account the numerical distortion on the profile. The performances of the aerosol backscattering ratio algorithm that includes the transmission loss due to the aerosol extinction are evaluated. A new algorithm developed to retrieve atmospheric temperature profiles from elastic lidar returns in the altitude range 30-90 km is also examined in detail.
