Paper Abstract

The edge technique can provide high accuracy spaceborne wind measurements as well as high spatial resolution, high accuracy ground and airborne measurements. Global wind measurements can be made with the edge technique from space with an accuracy of 1 m/s and a vertical resolution as high as 150 m in the boundary layer and 1 km through the troposphere. The edge technique can also be used for ground and airborne measurements with a spatial resolution and accuracy as high as 15 m and 20 cm/s. We have recently demonstrated this capability and present these measurements in this paper.
