Paper Abstract

We report the results of three campaigns in which the horizontal wind vector at cloud altitudes was measured using the holographic, conical-scan lidar HARLIE in its zenith-viewing mode. Measurements were made during the HOLO-1 and HOLO-2 tests in Utah and New Hampshire in March and June 1999, respectively, and at the DoE-ARM site in Oklahoma in September/October 2000. A novel algorithm facilitates the wind vector analysis of the HARLIE data. Observed wind velocity and direction were compared with radiosonde records and with other data obtained from video cloud imagery and independent lidar ranging. The results demonstrate good agreement between HARLIE data and the results of other methods. The conically scanning holographic lidar opens up new possibilities for obtaining the vertical profile of horizontal winds.
