The MARs Boundary Layer Lidar Experiment: Mars Winds at last!

Abstract : MARBLL is an optical remote sensing in- strument using a mature state-of-the-art Doppler wind lidar technology specifically designed to operate at the surface of Mars. The instrument includes an emitting device (laser) and a spectral analyzer (Mach-Zehnder interferometer). Wind profiling is inferred from the 1064 nm beam emit- ted by the laser and subsequently backscattered to the telescope by the suspended aerosols. The received signal has a Doppler shift induced by the radial velocity component of the particles, which is quantified by the interferometer.
