In order to explore additional capabilities of the MAX-DOAS, a novel 2D telescope was designed to perform azimuth scans from 0-360˚, and direct sun measurements in addition to the elevation angles. The additional viewing geometries enable the retrieval of aerosol optical/micro-physical properties and Raman scattering to investigate additional information of clouds and aerosols, all with a single portable instrument. The 2D-CU-MAX-DOAS was deployed during the intensive operation period of the TCAP campaign in Cape Cod, MA 2012.
