Abstract:

The results described in this paper concern the evaluation of wind vector and the atmospheric wind turbulent parameters based on the Doppler lidar and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. A spaceborne SAR measures the single level wind vector over sea in a large swath, an airborne Doppler lidar measures a 3D wind profile along the flight track. Comparison of the lidar and SAR estimates of the mean wind and turbulence parameters obtained from the simultaneous lidar and SAR measurements over approximately the same area of the Mediterranean Sea is carried out.
