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.

The fine temporal and spatial resolution datasets collected during CCIE, particularly from the CP-2, mobile UQ-XPOL radar, and Doppler lidar instruments, highlight the complexity that inherently occurs at the mesogamma scale of cold pool-sea-breeze interactions.
A scanning Doppler lidar (Streamline, Halo Photonics, United Kingdom) was set up to perform a variety of scans during IOPs to observe the temporal evolution of the flow approaching the crater and its interaction with the crater topography.
providing this observation ability may take the form of a data purchase, hire-purchase or acquisition of a Doppler lidar scanning to Long range.
The first were deployed less than a decade ago; consequently, there are no established networks and the use of Doppler lidar data in NWP is in its infancy.
