Abstract

Statistical estimation of the quality of lidar wind velocity measurements by the correlation method and the results of their application to the study of local and regional climates as well as to the reconstruction and ultrashort-range prediction (for forecasting periods ≤12 h) of mean zonal and meridional wind velocity components are presented. Wind velocity measurents with a three-path correlation lidar can be used successfully for climatic–ecological monitoring of local territories.
