All four lidars of the JPL atmospheric lidar group contributed to the validation of the Aura instruments MLS, and HIRDLS. In addition to the validation examples shown below, a nice case study of a polar ozone filament simultaneously observed by lidar, Aura-MLS, and reproduced by the model MIMOSA-CHIM over Hawaii is shown here.
