Abstract
Up to now, retrieval of the atmospheric extinction and backscatter has mainly relied on standard straightforward non-memory procedures such as slope-method, exponential- curve fitting and Klett's method. Yet, their performance becomes ultimately limited by the inherent lack of adaptability as they only work with present returns and neither past estimations, nor the statistics of the signals or a prior uncertainties are taken into account. In this work, a first inversion of the backscatter and ex...
