Short summary
A water vapor lidar has been designed and tested which has the potential to enable a national-scale network. The system is low-maintenance, low-cost, eye-safe, and provides continuous profiles of water vapor with complete coverage, including periods of daytime bright clouds, from 300m above ground level to 4km with 150m nominal vertical resolution and 1 min temporal resolution. The sensor may be useful in improving our understanding of the distribution of atmospheric water vapor.
