Results from a recent field campaign are used to assess the accuracy of wind speed and direction precision estimates produced by a Doppler lidar wind retrieval algorithm. The algorithm, which is based on the traditional velocity- azimuth-display (VAD) technique, estimates the wind speed and direction measurement precision using standard error 15 propagation techniques. For this study, the lidar was configured to execute an 8-beam plan-position-indicator (PPI) scan once every 12 minutes during… CONTINUE READING
