High Spectral Resolution Lidar

Photo contributed to the Recovery.gov Flickr Group by ARM Climate Research Facility

The laser from the high spectral resolution lidar (right) lights up the sky. The HSRL provides calibrated measurements of aerosol optical depth, backscatter, cross section, and depolarization. It was purchased through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The micropulse lidar can also be seen on the left.
