The significant issue of the classic multiangle data-processing technique is that the upper boundary height, up to which the multiangle data processing technique allows reliable extraction of optical parameters of the searched atmosphere, is always significantly less than the operative range of the scanning lidar. The existing inversion methodology yields poor accuracy when inverting the far-end data points of the signals measured in and close to zenith. In the report, the data processing technique is considered which allows using the zenith-measured signal to increase the maximal heights of profiling of the atmosphere. Simulated and experimental data are presented that illustrate the specifics of such a technique.
