About the Conference

Conference hallThe 2010 International Laser Radar Conference (ILRC25) will feature invited and contributed talks on topics associated with the development and application of lidar techniques for describing, understanding, and monitoring earth, atmospheric, and geophysical processes.

ILRC25 will place a special emphasis on the role of laser remote sensing in assessing the impacts of climate change and improving understanding of climate forcing mechanisms and key processes. The program will include keynote addresses on important issues such as the state of climate change science, recent research results, lingering uncertainties, research priorities, and future research directions.

 ILRC25, in addition to serving its traditional role as a venue for presentation of recent results, will also actively address the state and future of laser remote sensing. The program will make use of invited talks and conference themes to describe current and future needs for atmospheric, earth and ocean measurements, present emerging technologies and platforms that promise to increase the impact and application of lidar remote sensing, discuss the deployment of lidars as part of multi-dimensional, multi-sensor observation networks and show examples and ideas on the analysis and assimilation into models of multi-parameter, geographically extensive data sets.

Topics to be addressed will include (not in order of priority):
  • Advances in Lidar Components and Techniques

  • Atmospheric Winds and Turbulence

  • Observations of Boundary Layer Structure and Dynamics

  • Aerosol Characterization and Direct and Indirect Effects on Climate

  • Cloud Microphysics and Radiative Properties
  • Trace Gas Sensing for Climate and Air Quality

  • Lidar Networks and Assimilation of Observations into Forecast Models

  • Middle and Upper Atmosphere Physics and Chemistry
  • Combining Lidar with Other Techniques and Unique Lidar Applications

  • Atmospheric Water Vapor and Tropospheric Temperature

  • Space-based Missions, Validation, and Global Monitoring
