Abstract
Results presented in this contribution correspond to the first measurements made with the transportable lidar system developed by the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, which were collected during the eyra 2000 in the city of Barcelona. The system uses a Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm wavelength and 0.35 J pulse energy at a 20 Hz pulse repetition rate, has a 20 cm diameter telescope and a scanning range of 120 degrees in elevation and 300 degrees in azimuth. In this study only vertical profiles of a...
