DIAL-HSRL
Differential Absorption Lidar - High Spectral Resolution Lidar

Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) - High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) implements both the DIAL and HSRL systems to measure both ozone and aerosol profiles simultaneously. The HSRL modification to the DIAL adds an additional 3-wavelength (355 nm, 532 nm, 1064 nm) narrowband laser and receiver to measure aerosol backscatter, extinction, and depolarization. The aerosol optical depth measurements along the flight track are also calculated due to the aerosol extinction profiles below and above the aircraft.
