Abstract:

The following report is a summary of studies on planetary boundary layer visualization and remote determination of wind profiles by means of a high resolution lidar. These investigations rely on inhomogeneities in the natural aerosol distribution to delineate eddies in the boundary layer. Measurement of the rate of displacement of these eddies yield horizontal wind components. Author
