Paper Abstract

In the present report, a review of sodar methods of qualitative and quantitative analysis of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) structure and results of sodar measurements of individual components and total wind velocity vector, mixing layer height, structure constants of wind velocity and temperature fields, and precipitation over the past 10 years (1996-2006) is presented based on an analysis of Proceedings of the International Symposia on Acoustic Remote Sensing and Associated Techniques of the Atmosphere and Oceans (ISARS) with an emphasis on the Proceedings of the 12th and 13th ISARS. The parameters of Russian research sodars and commercial sodars produced abroad are discussed.
