Abstract : Under this grant, the University of Hawaii has acquired instrumentation to relate remotely sensed lidar backscatter signals to both in situ measurements and to satellite derived radiances. These instruments include a turn key pulsed Nd: YAG and Ti-sapphire tunable laser transmitter and 12' lidar scanner, these are now part of SOEST scanning lidar system. The in situ characterization instrumentation package includes forward scattering spectrometer probe (FSSP), GPS receiver and a portable satellite receiving station that would be deployed with lidar and in situ measurements to extend the range of observations and put these in broader context. These instruments are currently being used for studying coastal marine aerosols as a function of meteorological conditions on the island of Oahu. Current activities using this instrumentation are being supported by ONR grant nos. N00014-96-1-0320 and N00014-96-1-0317.
