An empirical study of the lidar ratio and its variability, with implications for determining climate forcing by satellite-borne lidar
It is well-established that atmospheric aerosols play a role in determining the radiative balance of the Earth. Further, it is believed that anthropogenic aerosols may be causing significant cooling at the Earth's surface (the "aerosol direct effect"). Several methods have been used to quantify this effect, but the uncertainties ...
