cops_suph_wvdial: absolute humidity and backscatter data from DIAL run by UHOH during COPS 2007

Abstract:
The files contain vertical profiles of absolute humidity and backscatter signals at 820 nm measured with the Water Vapor Differential Absorption Lidar of University of Hohenheim (UHOH DIAL) during COPS 2007. The UHOH DIAL was located at Hornisgrinde (COPS Supersite H) with other instruments. The backscatter signals are offline backscatter data multiplied with range squared in arbitrary units. These data show aerosols and clouds above the lidar. The temporal and spatial resolution of these data is 10 s and 15 m, respectively. For the humidity data (in g/m**-3) of this release, the temporal and spatial resolution is the same but with a 150-m-long weighting function. Data with higher resolution, data of higher altitudes, or data of measurement days which are not published within this release are available on request. See pdf summary in entry 'cops_suph_rlidar_info_1' for further information.
