This chapter presents a general overview of ground-based lidar system for ozone measurements in the troposphere as well as in the stratosphere. The DIAL technique, generally used by the lidar teams for ozone measurements is explained. Afterwards, the different elements of the DIAL system are assessed in this work. Finally, a brief description of the ozone DIAL systems for different altitudes ranges operated at the Haute Provence Observatory (OHP) in Southern France as well as some scientist results are showed.
