Abstract

The Raman wave-number shift for scattering at oxygen molecules is almost exactly 2/3 of the nitrogen Raman shift. Thisis used to build up a chain of three consecutive laser emission lines separated by 1/3 of the nitrogen Raman shift. It isshown that it is possible to determine aerosol extinction and backscatter coefficients without apriori assumptions from thereceived Rayleigh-Mie and Raman (oxygen and nitrogen) signals.
