Clouds and aerosols have important influences on the climate and remote sensing from space is required to assess their effects on a global scale. Current capabilities to observe clouds and aerosols using passive satellite sensors are limited, however. The Lidar In-space Technology Experiment, flown on the space shuttle in September 1994, demonstrated the application of space lidar to the study of clouds and aerosols. Lidar technology has now matured to a point where satellite lidars are feasible. Space lidar will provide new measurement capabilities and provide improved detection and characterization of the role of aerosol and cloud in global climate
