The Raman Lidar Group Why are we here? News
The Code 613.1 Raman Lidar group designs, builds, operates and maintains instrumentation for studying various atmospheric processes and constituents. Among these instruments are two that are designed primarily for use in field campaign activities. These instruments are: Our group routinely participates in field measurement campaigns designed to better understand atmospheric radiation and dynamic processes and to validate satellite measurements. The study of these components allows scientists to improve weather forecasting models and better understand global warming.
