T. J. McGee (GSFC), L. Twigg (SSAI), and G. Sumnicht (SSAI) — The STROZ lidar retrieves ozone vertical profiles in the stratosphere from 10 to 50 km. Temperature to ~80 km and aerosols (at 355 nm) to 35 km also are measured. The instrument has also been modified to measure water vapor from near the ground to ~15 km. When not participating in campaigns, the instrument conducts measurements at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. The STROZ lidar participated in the ozone and water vapor comparisons during the WAVES 2008 and 2009 campaigns.

T. J. McGee (GSFC), G. Sumnicht (SSAI), and L. Twigg (SSAI) — The Aerosol and Temperature Lidar (AT Lidar) has been rebuilt, and now includes water vapor to ~15 km, temperature in the troposphere using rotational Raman backscatter, stratospheric temperature up to ~80 km, and aerosol parameters using elastic and Raman backscatter up to ~35 km. When not participating in campaigns, the instrument conducts measurements at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. The AT lidar participated in the WAVES 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 campaigns conducted in Beltsville, MD.
T. J. McGee and J. Sullivan (GSFC) – Tropospheric ozone DIAL system operational since 2014, mostly during NASA campaigns at various locations. Measurements are from 0.2 – 12 km during daytime and extend to near 14 km at night.
