This thesis demonstrates the use of a two color lidar (light detection and ranging) instrument for the purpose of studying atmospheric aerosols. The instrument and the analysis techniques are explained and discussed to provide the necessary back-ground. The calibration is discussed and demonstrated followed by an example of the data analysis. The lidar's combination with a digital camera used to image cloud formations is then discussed and preliminary results are displayed.
