CL61 is able to report the following vertical profiles:

  • Parallel-polarized attenuated backscatter profile (PPOL)
  • Cross-polarized attenuated backscatter profile (XPOL)
  • Total attenuated backscatter profile (ABS = PPOL + XPOL)
  • Depolarization ratio profile (LDR = XPOL / PPOL)

Profiles are reported at 4.8 m (15.75 ft) height intervals.

LDR varies between 0 and 1.

Averaging time can be adjusted. For more information, see Vaisala Lidar Ceilometer CL61 User Guide.
