Durban lidar for atmospheric studies : current status

Abstract : In this paper, we briefly describe the Durban atmospheric lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) system for the measurements of vertical profiles of temperature and aerosol. The Durban lidar has been operated at University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) as apart of co-operation between the Reunion University and the Service d'Aéronomie (CNRS, IPSL, Paris) for climate research studies. Here, we describe the present system details and important specification. Sample results are provided from the earlier collected datasets.
