Paper Abstract

A pulsed fringe type laser Doppler anemometer has been developed during a feasibility study for remote wind velocity measurements. In contrast to conventional Doppler systems, this technique directly measures the cross-components of the wind vector. Field measurements over a range of l00 m have demonstrated successfully the performance of this method and have also shown eventual restricting atmospheric conditions.
