VERIFICATION OF WIND MEASUREMENT WITH MOBILE LASER DOPPLER SYSTEM

The Mobile Atmospheric Unit is a laser Doppler velocimeter system designed for the remote measurement of the three components of atmospheric wind. The unit was tested to verify the capability of the system to measure wind remotely and to evaluate alternative data-processing algorithms. Remotely measured wind data are compared with concurrent data measured by anemometers on a 150-meter meteorological tower. The test program showed that the laser Doppler velocimeter system is an accurate instrument for the remote measurement of winds.
