Remote sensing of the tropical rain forest boundary layer using pulsed Doppler lidar

by G. Pearson, F. Davies, C. Collier
Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions ()

Abstract

Within the framework of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Oxidant and Particle Photochemical Processes (OP3) project, a pulsed Doppler lidar was deployed for a 3 month period in the tropical rain forest of Borneo to remotely monitor vertical and horizontal transport, aerosol distributions and clouds in the lower levels of the atmosphere. These data are presented with a view to elucidating the scales and structures of the transport processes, which effect the chemical and particulate concentrations in and above the forest canopy, for applications in the parameterisation of climate models. Analysis of the clear-air vertical velocity data set is shown to enable direct characterisation of the diurnal variations in the boundary layer mixing processes.
