Abstract

In this contribution, we present recent work on the ability to achieve range-resolved greenhouse gases concentration measurements in the Earth's atmosphere (CH4, H2O) by combining broadband optical correlation spectroscopy (OCS) with lidar. We show that OCS-Lidar is a robust methodology, allowing trace gases remote sensing with a low dependence on the temperature and pressure-variation absorption cross section. Moreover, we evaluate, as an experimental proof, the water vapor profile in the planetary boundary layer using the 4ν 720 nm absorption band.
