Paper Abstract

During the GEOSS era, a Doppler wind lidar (DWL) described in this paper will be able to measure directly the 3-dimensional wind field. These observations can be used synergistically with traditional imagers, passive radiometers and active scatterometers to improve significantly the weather and climate missions. Synergisms being explored include laser height assignment and layer wind calibration for Cloud Motion Vectors (CMVs) and Water Vapor Motion Vectors (WVMVs), and the adjudication of directional ambiguities in Ocean Vector Winds (OVW) retrievals. These synergistic links will be incorporated into adaptive targeting schemes being evaluated within Observing System Simulation Experiments designed to explore ways to optimize the utility of the DWL observations.
