Paper Abstract

The GroundWinds New Hampshire instrument is a direct detection Doppler LIDAR system that utilizes backscatter signal from both Rayleigh and Mie scattering to measure Doppler shifts in the atmosphere from the ground. This system is the first of two planned systems that will be used to validate the technology and improve the design for other potential implementations. As a means to that end, a validation campaign was conducted in September 2000 to compare the GroundWinds measurements to that from four other systems. These were the GLOW instrument, the NOAA Mini MOPA system, and a Microwave sounder from the National Weather Service. This paper will review the design of the GroundWinds instrument, as well as summarize some of the preliminary GroundWinds results from the field experiment.
