DC-8 Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment (LASE) Data [NASA]

Summary

NASA's Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment (LASE) is an airborne Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) system used to measure water vapor, aerosols, and clouds throughout the troposphere. During IHOP_2002 LASE operated from the NASA DC-8 using strong and weak water vapor lines in both nadir and zenith modes, thereby simultaneously acquiring data below and above the aircraft.
