Paper Abstract

Velocity measurements and monitoring of atmospheric inhomogeneities have been provided by an optical system, incorporating image detector and supporting hardware. Two-dimensional intensity distributions have been digitally recorded after capturing successive images. The relevant software has been designed to operate the system for different purposes. In-plane velocity measurements of atmospheric clouds have been conducted in different weather conditions. Two methods for data processing have been applied to obtain the main drift velocity. Air turbulence estimations by registration of laser spot fluctuations and its geometry changes have also been considered.
