Paper Abstract

Global wind profiling with a space-borne Doppler lidar is expected to bring big progress in the studies on global climate change and Numerical Weather Prediction. A feasibility study has been done for an eye-safe 2micron coherent Doppler lidar aiming at demonstration of the technology onboard the Japanese Experiment module of the International Space Station. We are now developing an airborne coherent Doppler lidar system to measure wind profile under a jet plane for simulation of the Doppler lidar measurement in space. This system is also operated in the ground to develop algorithm of the wind measurements and the results of the wind profiles are compared with those derived from other instruments.
