Algorithm Development Of The Aglite-Lidar Instrument, Christian Marchant May 2008

Algorithm Development Of The Aglite-Lidar Instrument, Christian Marchant

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The Aglite system is a three-wavelength lidar plus a suite of instruments for measuring particulate emission levels near agricultural facilities. The lidar performs 3D scans of the air surrounding the facility and maps the concentration of particulates in the atmosphere surrounding the facility with high spatial and temporal resolution. Data from the conventional instruments are used to calibrate the lidar.

The Aglite system includes a retrieval program, which combines the data from the lidar instrument with data from the conventional instruments to produce measurements of particulate concentration values. This thesis describes the design of the lidar data retrieval program, the ...
