Abstract
Lidar offers considerable promise as a tool for the remote sensing and measurement of aerosols and clouds and, as a consequence, leads to new prospects for the remote detection from the ground and in the air of biological and chemical contamination. The remote detection of such contaminants is important since it offers both the possibility of a wide-area coverage that is not possible with point monitors and also a coverage of volumes which, for a number of reasons, may be inaccessible to direct measurement. Within the past few years, laser technological advances, computerization, and improved signal-processing methods have led to significant advances in both the theory and practice of lidar sensing.
