Title: Raman Lidar Water Vapor Mixing Ratio and Temperature Value-Added Products

Abstract

This report describes the methods used to estimate profiles of water vapor mixing ratio (WVMR) and temperature from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility Raman lidars (RL). This includes a description of the equations and the calibration methods that are used, as well as the output datastreams and variable names. We begin with an overview of the ARM RL systems, with a focus on the detection channels used for the WVMR and temperature measurements.
