Abstract
Among the different techniques available for measuring the atmospheric water vapor content, Raman lidars stand out as accurate instruments providing detailed profiles with high temporal and altitude resolution. Their principle is based on obtaining the range-resolved ratio of the lidar signals corresponding to Raman returns from water vapor and nitrogen molecules, which is proportional to the water vapor mixing ratio. To do this, it is necessary to determine a calibration factor, specific of eac...
