The results of comparative experiments on measurements of the crosswind velocity by the passive correlation optical method and with a coherent Doppler wind lidar are analyzed. The passive correlation optical measurements were carried out with a crosswind velocity meter developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (IAO SB RAS).
