Abstract

An experimental study using lidar has been made of possible resonance scattering from water vapor at 694.38 nm. This radiation was not detectable. An upper bound for the differential backscatter resonance cross section, based upon experimental uncertainties, was found to be 6.7 times that of the Rayleigh cross section.
