CO2 Sounder Lidar for Earth Science Missions

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Close up of the HgCdTe detector

We have been developing the CO2 Sounder lidar to provide active (laser-based) column measurements of atmospheric CO2 from space.  The tasks are to conduct OSSE experiments to clarify the science traceability matrix, support laser development to increase the laser power and increase the TRL,  improving the receiver design and analysis and retrieval approaches, and to analyze lidar measurements of CO2 made from aircraft.
