Experiments have shown that there may be advantages in using a spaced antenna method instead of a Doppler method for measuring wind profiles, particularly for systems with small dimensions of the type likely to be used in operational wind profiling. The comparison between radar and radiosonde data have shown good agreement, indicating that the features seen in the radar reflectivity data are characteristic of frontal temperature structure and not associated with precipitation or local convection. Experiments show that a VHF radar operated continuously can provide synoptically meaningful meteorological data and is capable of high time resolution data required by future numerical methods.
