Abstract

Sample observations of the lower troposphere made by airborne lidar during the Arctic Gas and Aerosol Sampling Program-2 (AGASP-2) are shown for the area of Thule, Greenland. The lidar detected multiple haze layers, dense water clouds, ice crystal precipitation, and other features of interest over northern Greenland and the pack ice of Baffin Bay. The observations attest to the utility of a relatively simple airborne aerosol backscatter lidar in support of atmospheric studies in Arctic and Antarctic regions.
