Wind Profiler at NICT Tokyo (1993-2003)

Yuichi Ohno
Wind profiler is a Doppler radar for measuring wind from the ground. It can measure wind vectors above the radar site utilizing the clear-air echo. Clear-air echo is caused by fluctuation of the refractive index in which the scale is half the radar wavelength (Bragg scattering). From the Doppler shift of along a certain beam direction, the line-of-sight velocity along the radar beam can be measured. Assuming horizontal homogeneity of wind field, three components of...
