Laser correlation method with adaptive choice of measuring base for on-the-fly measurements of wind velocity


An on-the-fly laser method for measuring wind velocity in the atmosphere using the time correlation analysis is considered. It is shown that measuring the size of aerosol inhomogeneities and adaptive choice of the measuring base in accordance with the criterion obtained allow an increase in the accuracy of on-the-fly measurements of wind velocity by correlation lidars.
