    Description

    The direct multiangle solution may allow inversion of the scanning lidar data even when the requirement of the horizontally stratified atmosphere is poorly met. The solution is based on two principles: (1) The signal measured in zenith is the core source for extracting the information about the atmospheric aerosol loading, and (2) The multiangle signals are used as auxiliary data to extract the vertical transmittance profile from the zenith signal. However, there may exist a level of horizontal heterogeneity of the atmosphere when no reliable information about the optical properties can be retrieved with multiangle solution
