Atmospheric Lidar Fundamentals

This book contains an extensive and thorough coverage of basic light-scattering theory and atmospheric lidars. There is a broad variety of fundamental issues, e.g., light absorption and scattering, laser-induced fluorescence, and applications, i.e., lidars that use broadband or narrow pulse lasers, that provide concrete illustrations of the methods developed in this book.

This is an interdisciplinary textbook in the field of applied optics, overlapping the disciplines of atmospheric lidars and optical spectroscopy. The material will be of interest to a great variety of readers, including graduate students in physics and optics, researchers and optical engineers.
