During February 1974, an airborne downlooking LIDAR system was flown in support of the Regional Air Pollution Study being conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in St. Louis, Missouri. The LIDAR system was used primarily to measure mixing layer height over the metropolitan area during the morning and evening transition periods. The flight plan consisted of south to north and west to east traverses with horizontal data resolution of 1.5 kilometers and a vertical resolution of 30 meters. Final data are presented in computer-generated, iso-scattering curves plotted for altitude versus ground-distance along the particular traverse.
