Paper Abstract

We report on the implementation and testing of a new wavelet-based motion estimation algorithm to estimate horizontal vector wind fields in real-time from horizontally-scanning elastic backscatter lidar data, and new experimental results from field work conducted in Chico, California, during the summer of 2013. We also highlight some limitations of a traditional cross-correlation method and compare the results of the wavelet-based method with those from the cross-correlation method and wind measurements from a Doppler lidar.
