Russ Philbrick (Carolina State Univ., USA)

LADIMAS campaign

Sep91 to Jan92 (70N to 65S); at least 24 measurements nights are reported but No inventory or list of measurements days is yet available.

 

Penn State University

Apr92 to May92 (41N); after the LADIMAS campaign the lidar was returned to Penn. State Univ. and the Pinatubo aerosol measured with the same lidar from this site. No inventory or list of measurements days are yet available.
