Abstract : This publication contains extensive abstracts of 89 papers presented at the Laser Radar Conference, held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, June 21-25,1982. The topics of the conference sessions were: (1) Middle atmospheric measurements; (2) Meteorological parameters--temperature, density, humidity; (3) Trace gases by Raman and DIAL techniques; (4) Techniques and technology; (5) Plume dispersion; (6) Boundary layer dynamics; (7) Wind measurements; (8) Visibility and aerosol properties; and (9) Multiple scattering, clouds, and hydrometers. This conference manifests a maturing technology. The abstracts discuss measurements of properties from the Earth's ocean surface to the mesosphere, made with techniques ranging from elastic and inelastic scattering to Doppler shifts and differential absorption.
