At the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research several active remote sensing instruments such as radar, lidar or sodar are placed. They monitor continuously particles in clouds and precipitation but also particles such as vulcanic ash, sea-salt or pollen.

The basis for these atmospheric measurements by radar, lidar or sodar is the active remote sensing equation. You can download here a presentation that introduces this fundamental equation which provides an analytical expression for the mean power received by an active remote sensing instrument.
