Abstract:

We describe algorithms for determination of the mean values, standard deviations, asymmetry, and excess coefficients of the distributions of radial and tangential components of the horizontal wind velocity from the data obtained with a VOLNA-3 sodar using any of the three-channel sensing schemes. Two possible approaches to construction of measurement algorithms and estimation of their errors are considered. Sodar measurements of the vertical profiles of the parameters under study are exemplified.
