The possibility of performing atmospheric-transmissivity measurements by lidar is considered. In the present paper two distinct methods have been successfully applied. The first one is based on the detection of the Raman return from molecular nitrogen. An alternative method is based on the simultaneous detection of the elastic and N-2 Raman returns. Measurements based on both techniques are discussed in detail, the second technique producing more accurate results. Through this technique an estimation of the Angstrom coefficient can also be obtained.
