        supplementalInformation:  The HRDL optical hardware is housed in a 2ft x 2ft x 4ft enclosure. The electronics are mounted in 2 4ft intrument racks. It can be mounted in a seatainer on a trailer or ship or on aircraft. The lidar is typically operated during intensive field campaigns. When mounted in a seatainer, the system employs a full hemispheric scanner to have full sky coverage. The optical system runs at 200 Hz, data are typically averaged for .5 - 1 sec. It provides range resolved measurements of radial wind speed and aerosol backscatter intensity. The data are used to study the boundary layer of the atmosphere.
