Using a triaxial Doppler sodar the planetary boundary-layer structure and the wind flow dynamics at the Arctic site Ny-Ålesund have been studied. The relationship between winds measured at Ny-Ålesund and at the nearby atmospheric research station on Zeppelin mountain was investigated for the first time. While Ny-Ålesund receives predominantly katabatic flow (from 120°) from the Kongsvegen glacier, the field is rotated within the lowest 500 m and arrives at Zeppelin from southerly directions.
