Examination of the nonlinear LIDAR-operator : the influence of inhomogeneous absorbing spheres on the operator

  • The determination of the atmospheric aerosol size distribution is an inverse illposed problem. The shape and the material composition of the air-carried particles are two substantial model parameters. Present evaluation algorithms only used an approximation with spherical homogeneous particles. In this paper we propose a new numerically efficient recursive algorithm for inhomogeneous multilayered coated and absorbing particles. Numerical results of real existing particles show that the influence of the two parameters on the model is very important and therefore cannot be ignored.
