NASA ER-2 Cloud Lidar System (CLS) Data
The Cloud Lidar System (CLS) was flown aboard the ER-2 to conduct cloud radiation measurements during CEPEX. The instrument was designed to operate at high altitudes in order to obtain measurements above the highest clouds providing the true height of cloud boundaries and the density structure of less dense clouds. The height structure of cirrus, cloud top density and multiple cloud layers are also provided. The laser type was ND:YAG I,II. Principal Investigator was Dr. James Spinhirne.
