Lidar Ceilometer CL61

for Meteorology

More than just a ceilometer, the Vaisala CL61 uses first-of-its-kind technology to provide refined profiling data and detect liquid/frozen depolarization, dust, and volcanic ash — in any weather, 24/7.

Redefining cloud measurement

Delivering the most comprehensive insights in the industry, CL61 is a high-performance light detection and ranging (LiDAR) instrument with depolarization measurement capable of unattended operation in all conditions.

In addition to basic ceilometer reporting, the CL61 offers depolarization measurement that enables differentiation between solid, liquid, or mixed-phase clouds and precipitation, providing ready-to-use information for atmospheric characterization.

The CL61 complements already-existing research lidars and can be added on to build hybrid ceilometer networks for more accurate weather modeling and situational awareness.
