A high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) employing
an iodine absorption filter and
a tunable, narrow bandwidth Nd:YAG laser is demonstrated.
Measurements of aerosol scattering cross section
and optical depth are presented. The iodine absorption filter provides
a better performance than the Fabry-Perot etalon it replaces.
