Recent lidar measurements of stratospheric ozone and temperature within the Network for the Detection of Stratospheric Change
The Goddard mobile lidar was deployed at Cannon Air Force Base near Clovis, New Mexico, during the spring of 1990. Measurements of stratospheric ozone and temperature were made over a period of six weeks. Data from the lidar system is compared with data from a balloon- borne, ultraviolet instrument launched from nearby Ft. Sumner, New Mexico. Along with several improvements to this instruments which are now underway, a second lidar dedicated to temperature and aerosol measurements is now being developed.
