A novel method for coherent Doppler wind lidars (DWLs) calibration is shown in this work. Concurrent measurements of a ground based aerosol lidar operating at 532 nm and an airborne DWL at 2 µm are used in combination with sun photometer measurements for the retrieval of backscatter and extinction profiles.
