Comparing NASA’s Doppler lidar and NSSL’s Doppler observations

[Schematic shows a comparison of wind measurement systems of NASA's airborne Doppler lidar and NSSL's dual Doppler observations]

This experiment was supported by NASA in their interest in developing lidar Doppler technology to measure winds from space. Here we compare the winds measured with NSSLís Doppler radars and that measured by the airborne lidar.
