Lidar and infrared radiometer studies of stratocumulus clouds

By Matthew Charles Pickett


This thesis comprises a study of marine stratocumulus clouds measured by ground-based Lidar and Infrared RADiometry (or LIRAD). The clouds were measured in northwestern Tasmania in the winter of 1993 and summer of 1995 during the Southern Ocean Cloud Experiment (SOCEX). The study done for this thesis represents the first application of the LIRAD method to low boundary layer clouds
