Abstract

The winds flowing toward an urban area using coherent Doppler lidar were investigated. The extent to which the lidar data can provide information concerning turbulence in the wind field approaching the downtown city area was also explored. The coordinated ASU-ARL effort to obtain intersecting RHI data, postprocessing developments, and acquisition/postprocessing for the ASU lidar stares on the upwind side of the central business district. Analysis of stare lidar data can yield information about turbulence along a lidar beam.
