    This paper presents the developments of a new generation of Doppler LIDAR systems for measuring wind, turbulence and cloud layers around airports. Their potential combination with existing observing systems equipped with surface wind measurements, ceilometers and high resolution weather radars will be discussed given their intrinsic Author: Ludovic Thobois. Turbulence can be determined as well. Although accurate measurement of crossbeam wind is difficult, separation of shear from turbulence is possible using SA technique. The SA weather radar interferometry can be used to measure shear and turbulence, measurements that cannot be made with conventional Doppler weather radars. 1 Measuring Point Velocities and Near-Bed Turbulence Parameters with an Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter in Environmental River Studies Connie DeMoyer1 and Tracy Vermeyen2 1 Hydraulic Engineer, Bureau of Reclamation, Water Resources Research Laboratory, Mail code , P.O.

Very powerful ground-based research radars are capable of detecting clear air echoes associated with KHI. Modern Doppler weather radar systems can measure turbulence in clear air, based on the variance (or ‘spread’) of the velocity distribution, although that capability is generally limited to the boundary layer.
