RIVM Report 722701002
This report describes the development of a lidar system for stratospheric ozone measurements and its implementation in Lauder, New Zealand. As a part of the Dutch National Research program on Global Air Pollution and Climate Change, a lidar system has been developed in Bilthoven, the Netherlands. The instrument is designed to measure vertical profiles of stratospheric ozone concentrations in the altitude range of 15 to 45 kilometers. The system was shipped to New Zealand and installed at one of the five Primary Charter Sites of the International Network for the Detection of Stratospheric Change (NDSC). The routine operation started in November 1994.
