Abstract

This dataset consists of attenuated backscatter coefficient (beta) measured by the 905 nm Vaisala CT75K lidar ceilometer situated at Chilbolton, England (51.1445°N, 1.4370°W). The CT75K is a low power instrument designed principally for accurately determining the height of cloud base. However, the backscatter profile also contains potentially useful information on the optical properties of clouds and aerosols. Due to the low power and relatively long wavelength, the CT75K is unable to detect molecular backscatter.
