A new method has been developed for calibration of the depolarization measurement of an atmospheric lidar. The technique requires a simple polarizer, and can be performed without interfering with the measurement set-up. The theoretical background of the procedure will be given and results of this calibration procedure on the tropospheric stratospheric aerosol lidar in McMurdo will be presented. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
