The performance of Aeolus in heterogeneous atmospheric conditions using high-resolution radiosonde data
Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussions
The European Space Agency Aeolus mission aims to measure wind profiles from space. A major challenge is to retrieve high quality winds in heterogeneous atmospheric conditions, i.e. where both the atmospheric dynamics and optical properties vary strongly within the sampling volume. In preparation for launch we aim to quantify the expected error of retrieved winds from atmospheric heterogeneity, particularly in the vertical, and develop algorithms for wind error correction, as part of thedoi:10.5194/amtd-7-1393-2014 fatcat:ll64iunnfrg5zpqzcazxu323mq
