Ceilometers were first used to assist in aircraft operations by giving accurate cloud height measurements, more recently they have also been used as a research tool. This meeting will look at the current generation of ceilometers and LIDARs and their measurement capabilities and how they are being used for cloud and boundary layer aerosols research.
