We present the application of the Optimal Estimation Method (OEM) to retrieve atmospheric temperatures from pure rotational Raman (PRR) backscatter lidar measurements. A forward model (FM) is developed to retrieve temperature and tested using synthetic measurements. The OEM offers many advantages for this analysis, including eliminating the need to determine temperature calibration coefficients.
