Paper Abstract

Numerous coherent lidar systems have shown the ability to make measurements of atmospheric winds over the past three decades. During the past decade a 2-micron-wavelength coherent lidar system for remote wind and aerosol backscatter measurements has been advanced from initial breadboard demonstration units to a turnkey coherent lidar product, the WindTracer"R" that can operate autonomously and reliably. In this paper, the instrument is described and recent examples of wind measurement capability are provided.
