Abstract
Two, complementary techniques are proposed that are deployable on dropsondes or mobile measurement platforms and measure the scattering coefficient of atmosphere aerosols. The Phase I activity will be a proof of concept study that evaluates the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two measurement systems and combines a detailed analysis of the optical and electronic systems with a laboratory validation of the optical designs.
