Abstract

Systematic error sources that require correction when making remote airborne measurements of the atmospheric pressure field in the lower troposphere, using an oxygen differential absorption lidar, are analyzed. A detailed analysis of this measurement technique is provided, which includes corrections for imprecise knowledge of the detector background level, the oxygen absorption line parameters, and variations in the laser output energy. In addition, the authors analyze other possible sources of systematic errors, including spectral effects related to aerosol and molecular scattering, water vapor vertical distribution, interference by rotational Raman scattering, and interference by isotopic oxygen lines.
