Description

We measured the horizontal wind speed vector with two separate lidar cloud tracking techniques. Data were taken during two measurement campaigns: HOLO-1, at Utah State University (USU), Utah, and HOLO-2 at St. Anselm College, New Hampshire. Army Research Office Lidar (AROL-2), Holographic Airborne Rotating Lidar Instrument (HARLIE), and a wide-angle camera were used during HOLO-1. Prototype Holographic Atmospheric Scanner for Environmental Remote Sensing (PHASERS) also participated in HOLO-2. Two measurement methods are described, and selected results from the two HOLO campaigns are shown.
