Coherent laser radar - For remote sensing of atmospheric wind fields
The coherent laser radar project is developing an eye-safe laser radar, or lidar, for coherent remote sensing of atmospheric wind fields. This system will be able to predict and monitor dispersion of pollutants in the planetary boundary layer, and detect clear-air turbulence and wind- shear in front of aircraft. The Optics and Photonics resear...
