Abstract

Lidar in a Turbulent Atmosphere. V. A. Banakh and various reflectors. These statistics are important for V. L. Mironov. 1988. 190 pp. $60.00. Hardbound. predicting the fluctuations in lidar signals. The last Artech House, Inc. chapter considers the variance of the image centroid in the focal plane of a telescope, again for weak and very strong scattering conditions. Lidar is a promising technique for remote sensing of atmospheric conditions. Optimal performance of This book contains the most complete collection lidar systems require an understanding of the propa- of results for the statistics of laser light reflected in a gation of reflected laser light in a turbulent atmo- turbulent atmosphere. Since the inner scale of tur- sphere. This is the main emphasis of Lidar in a Turbulent bulence was assumed to be zero, all the results Atmosphere. The operation of an actual Lidar system presented are lower bounds for real atmospheric tur- is not considered; i.e., the detector design, atmo- bulence at optical and infrared wavelengths. In many spheric scattering mechanisms, pulse effects, calibra- cases of interest (horizontal propagation paths), the tion, signal-to-noise analysis, wind measurements scattering is moderately strong and all the effects dis- (Doppler lidar), and differential absorption
