Lidar can provide the range-resolved information about the vertical profiles of optical properties of aerosol content and clouds present in the atmosphere. However, before obtaining the information from received lidar signal we ought to use a few pre-processing techniques such as range-correction, temporal and spatial averaging, dead time correction of the photon counts (PC) signal, correction due to overlap effect, Simulation of molecular Rayleigh signal and gluing analog & PC signals. In this work, we have discussed some of the initial pre-processing techniques ought to be performed before lidar inversion.
