LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) is an active, ground-based laser remote sensing technique to probe the atmosphere. Elastic backscatter LIDAR is typically used for studies of vertical profiles of aerosol-related quantities and clouds. The LIDAR, with its high spatial and temporal resolutions observes the attenuation of radiation appearing due to interaction of light with gas molecules and aerosols suspended in the air.
