Abstract

Global wind profiling is important to improve initial conditions for numerical weather prediction or general circulation model. A working group for a future space-based DWL mibion is studying a future space-based coherent DWL. NICT developed an endto-end comprehensive simulator for wind measurement from space called ISOSIM-L (Integrated Satellite Observation SIMulator for a space-based coherent Doppler Lidar) in order to study measurement performances of a space-based Doppler lidar. Retrieved LOS wind data simulated by the ISOSIM-L are used for an Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) system to investigate potential impacts on the numerical weather prediction. In the paper, we present recent results from feasibility study of space-based Doppler Wind Lidar with using the ISOSM-L and OSSE.
