Doppler lidar

[′dop·lər ′lī‚där]
(optics)
A type of lidar that measures the frequency shift of the scattered laser pulse; this frequency shift is proportional to the velocity of the scatterer along the propagation path.

While the Doppler lidar and G-1 distributions are similar for [z/z.sub.i] = 0.7, the differences likely result from the spatial aircraft flight path that samples convective eddies that may not pass directly over the Central Facility.

Its unique Doppler lidar instrument, called ALADIN (Atmospheric LAser Doppler INstrument), is the result of French expertise, internationally recognized in lidars, supported on this project by CNES and supported by the LATMOS (Atmosphere Laboratory, Backgrounds, Spatial Observations) and the LMD of the IPSL (Dynamic Meteorology Laboratory of the Pierre Simon Laplace Institute).
The data are gridded within a cubic domain that is 6 km on a side, centered on the location of the Doppler lidar (36[degrees]63'19"N, 97[degrees]29'11"W), and with the bottom of the domain at ground level.
the 2 systems should be identical and comprise the following components: - pulsed ir doppler lidar including control computer and control software, - power supply and connection cable, - documentation of all hardware and software components, - software for the evaluation of measurement data at the workplace.
