Abstract

Wind is fundamental in many atmospheric phenomena. Global wind profile observation is important to improve numerical weather prediction (NWP) and various meteorological studies. Wind profile observations are measured mainly by radiosonde networks. Most of the weather stations are on land, while weather stations on oceans and remote land areas are sparsely distributed. The current global wind observing systems do not satisfy the globally homogeneous wind profile observation. A space-based Doppler wind lidar is one of the candidates for future global wind profile observations. In the paper, we present results from feasibility study of space-based Doppler Wind Lidar.
