Published online: 13 April 2018
Recent developments of lidars and data analysis methods for AD-Net, and the studies using ADNet are presented. Continuous observation was started in 2001 at three stations using polarizationsensitive Mie-scattering lidars. Currently, lidars, including three multi-wavelength Raman lidars and one high-spectral-resolution lidar, are operated at 20 stations. Recent studies on validation/assimilation of chemical transport models, climatology, and epidemiology of Asian dust are also described.
