R/V Ron Brown Mini-MOPA Doppler Lidar - Leg 2



Vertical Profiles of wind velocity and direction are produced from doppler lidar mearsurements taken aboard the Ron Brown from Oct 08 to Oct 22 2001. The VAD technique (Browning and Wexler, 1968) was employed to process wind information taken in scanning mode to produce the high-resolution vertical profiles. All velocities are in m/s and heights in meter.
