Abstract:

A method is proposed for reconstruction of altitude profiles of the wind speed and direction from measurement data of a scanning coherent Doppler lidar. The method does not require pre-estimation of the radial wind speed and allows one to retrieve altitude profiles of the wind speed with the error no higher than 2 m/s and wind direction with the error no higher than 20° up to the heights of 18 km from the data of sensing with a space-borne lidar.
