Published online: 7 July 2020
The results of methane profiling in the lower troposphere by Raman lidar from Lille University observatory platform (France), are presented. The use of powerful DPSS tripled Nd:YAG laser allowed profiling of methane background mixing ratio of 2 ppm in the night time up to 4000 m with 100 m height and 1 hour temporal resolution. Enhancement of CH4 mixing ratio inside the boundary layer comparing to the free troposphere values was observed.
