LIDAR for atmospheric backscatter and temperature measurements

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

We propose to demonstrate key capabilities of a multifunctional atmospheric lidar.  This lidar could be part of a Surface Weather Station to measure atmospheric backscatter profiles and temperature.  These measurements address high priority needs as summarized in the 2011 Planetary Decadal Survey.   We propose to demonstrate key capabilities of a multifunctional atmospheric lidar for a Mars lander.  This lidar could be part of a Surface Weather Station to measure atmospheric backscatter profiles and temperature.  These measurements address high priority needs for Mars science as summarized in the 2011 Planetary Decadal Survey and the last Mars 2020 Science Definition Team Final Report (2013).The objectives of this effort are to measure atmospheric backscatter profiles and temperature using a zenith looking lidar, designed for a small lander. The lidar will also measure temperature by scanning over two adjacent CO2 lines at 1572 nm that have different temperature sensitivities.
