ABoVE/ASCENDS: Atmospheric Backscattering Coefficient Profiles, 2017 Xiaoli Sun, Paul Thomas Kolbeck, James Brice Abshire, Stephan Randy Kawa, and Jianping Mao

Short summary
We describe the measurement and data processing of the atmospheric backscatter profile data by our CO2 Sounder lidar from the 2017 ASCENDS/ABoVE airborne campaign. It is an additional data set from the column average CO2 mixing ratio measurements from laser sounding. It not only helps to interpret the CO2 mixing ratio measurement but also give a standalone data set for atmosphere backscattering study at 1572 nm wavelength.
