Stream Line Doppler lidar measurements of wind speed and direction with the duo-beam method in the surface air layer

Abstract

The results of retrieval of wind speed and direction from measurements of radial velocity by a Stream Line pulsed coherent Doppler lidar using the duo-beam method and conical scanning are presented. These results are compared with data of a sonic anemometer (point sensor).
