Abstract

A technique for measuring instantaneous atmospheric temperature profiles is given. Utilizing the portion of the laser backscatter arising from the Raman rotational spectrum of N2, profiles up to 2 km with 100 m depth resolution provide temperature to within a degree with signal-to-noise ratios of order unity. Examples are given.
