International Laser Radar
These conferences, held biennially, bring together
an interdisciplinary group of scientists working in the field
of laser remote sensing as applied to the atmosphere, earth and
oceans. The conferences are held under the auspices of the International
Coordination-group for Laser Atmospheric Studies (ICLAS) of the
International Radiation Commission, International Association
of Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics. ICLAS is the parent organization
for these ILRCs, which are held during even years. Through the
cooperation of many societies and organizations, "national"
lidar conferences and conferences/workshops associated with specific
or related aspects of lidar research are held during odd years.
ILRCs highlight application results and recent technological advances
in laser remote sensing of the atmosphere, ocean and surface properties.
Suggested topics include but are not limited to aerosols and clouds,
temperature and humidity, atmospheric trace gases and chemistry,
air quality, bioaerosols, winds, transport processes, dynamics
of the atmosphere, radiative transfer, radiation budget, space
lidar, lidar networking, precision altimetry, and commercial lidar.
