Short summary
We describe a practical implementation of rotational Raman (RR) measurements in an existing Mie-Raman lidar to obtain aerosol extinction and backscattering at 532nm. A 2.3nm width interference filter was used to select a spectral range characterized by low temperature sensitivity within the anti-Stokes branch of the RR spectrum. Simulations demonstrate that the temperature dependence of the scattering cross section does not exceed 1.5% in the 230-300K range.
