The detection of clouds and aerosols is important for climate research. Lidar has been widely used in atmospheric remote sensing research because of its high spatial and temporal resolution and ability to detect profiles. High spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) accurately calculates the optical properties of aerosols and clouds without relying on any assumptions. Based on the 532nm iodine HSRL system, the lidar ratio of the urban aerosol in Hangzhou is 40-50sr, and the average lidar ratio of the cirrus is 24.79sr, demonstrating that the HSRL system and retrieval algorithms accurately obtain the optical properties of clouds and aerosols.
