Project Description

Project Image  ACE Lidar Optical Data Simulation Using Ground Based Multi-wavelength Lidar and the GEOS-5 Model

Address the question of the minimum necessary hardware configuration for the ACE lidar through: Using real lidar data, perform trade space analysis of optical data acquired versus aerosol physical parameters retrieved. Perform global simulations of lidar aerosol measurements using GEOS-5 model output.

Perform trade-space analysis of optical data input versus retrieved aerosol physical properties using actual multi-wavelength lidar measurements acquired from GSFC during DISCOVER-AQ. Perform same trade space analysis using simulated data. Perform multi-wavelength lidar simulation based on output from the GEOS-5 climate model. Demonstrate aerosol physical retievals from simulated lidar data that is based on GEOS-5 output.
