[Clouds and aerosols are part of everyday life around the planet, influencing weather, health, and climate.]
[This chapter introduces the subject of light scattering by molecules and water droplets in the atmosphere and gives an overview of the theory essential for interpreting elastic lidar returns from clouds and aerosols. First, parameters describing droplet size distributions in clouds are explained.]
[This chapter describes an eye-safe divided lens biaxial elastic lidar ceilometer prototype, as well as the considerations that were involved in its design.]
[A good understanding of overlap of transmitter and receiver channels as a function of height is essential for interpretation of lidar returns.]
[The instrument described in Chap. 3 was designed to automatically report cloud height and vertical visibility. This chapter presents the signal processing methods that have been applied to the prototype and subsequently evaluates their performance.]
[A novel lidar ceilometer prototype has been designed, built, and tested.]
