Abstract

The scattering of laser light on air molecules is a promising tool in atmospheric science. Atmospheric quantities like air composition, temperature, pressure and wind speed can be derived from the spectrum of molecular scattered light by analyzing the measured spectra with respective physical models of the underlying scattering processes. This article gives an overview of the various kinds of molecular scattering processes and their utilization in atmospheric science.
