Abstract
A new volume-scanning crossed-path lidar technique for studying atmospheric intermittency in the surface and boundary layers is proposed. This technique provides a spatial resolution of 25 m and a temporal resolution of several seconds, and it permits us to study turbulent structures and processes in the atmospheric surface and boundary layers by performing a volumetric mapping of the optical refractive index structure parameter field. Unlike radar and acoustic sounders, this technique is not affected by humidity fluctuations. Lidar performance estimates show that the proposed technique is practical.
