Abstract
THIS INVESTIGATION CONCERNS A NEW TYPE OF LIDAR SYSTEM FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURE OF THE TROPOSPHERE AND ITS CONSTITUENTS. THE MULTIBEAM LIDAR SYSTEM IS BASED ON A NEW PRINCIPLE, NOT PREVIOUSLY USED, WHICH OFFERS SEVERAL ADVANTAGES OVER A SCANNING LIDAR WITH WHICH IT MAY BE COMPARED. THE DESIGN GIVES EMPHASIS TO APPLICATION OF THE SYSTEM TO STUDIES OF FOG, CLOUD, STORMS, AND THE DISPERSION OF SMOKE AND CONTAMINANT GASSES. THE EFFORT IS DIVIDED INTO THREE PHASES -- SYSTEM DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, AND APPLICATION. PHASE I - SYSTEM DESIGN FORMS THE SUBJECT OF THIS STUDY EFFORT. THERE ARE SEVERAL APPLICATIONS OF THIS NEW TECHNIQUE WHICH ARE POTENTIALLY USEFUL TO NASA AND THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE.
