Map entire wind fields at ranges of 50 meters to 14 kilometers and perform lower boundary layer sensing with the Windcube 3D Doppler Wind Lidar.
Using the same core laser technology as Windcube® Lidar and Wind Iris Lidar, the Windcube 100S, 200S, and 400S are utilized for advanced applications in wind resource assessment (onshore and offshore), wind turbine power curve measurement, short term forecasting, and wind turbine wake assessment. Scan scenarios are fully user configurable and designed for maximum flexibility in both targeted research campaigns and long-term operational uses.
Windcube 100S, 200S, and 400S provide an optimal balance between field deployment ease and measurement capability, with unmatched measurement range among portable Doppler Lidars and independently proven accuracy both in data retrieval and scanner pointing.

The paper presents case studies of atmospheric features, captured by scanning Doppler lidar measurements during the Wind Forecast improvement Project-2 (WFIP-2) in the complex terrain of the Columbia River Valley.
To improve severe weather prediction modeling capabilities, experts have begun incorporating scanning Doppler Lidar, a remote sensing solution, into mesonet configurations.

Objective: Collect in situ measurements of ε downwind of a multi-MW turbine for comparison to remotely-sensed quantities and improvement of turbine wake parameterizations.
In the 2013 CWEX field campaign presented here, multiple remote sensing instruments quantified the spatial variability of winds and turbulence through the complex flow of multiple rows of a ~ 150 MW onshore wind plant.

In recent years, floating Lidar buoys that profile vertically have gained significant traction as low-cost and quick-to-deploy alternatives to conventional offshore met towers.
This poster present the main characteristics and added values of Windcube Scanning Lidars as operational met sensor for airports as well as its evaluation in SESAR weather project 15.4.9c for building a Ground Weather Monitoring System (GWMS) combining all sources of MET data relevant for the airport.

As part of the Carbon Trust’s ‘Offshore Wind Accelerator’ program, a study into offshore wakes and turbulence is to be carried out using the innovative combination of four nacelle-mounted Lidars and two long range scanning Lidars.
This paper proposes a new approach to predict the Coherent Wind Doppler Lidar data availability and range of measurement using both instrumental simulation and atmospheric observations of aerosol optical properties from weather stations and simulations.
Abrupt changes in the wind velocity or direction near the ground can cause serious hazards to aircraft during approach or departure operations. That is why the French Air Navigation Service Provider (DSNA) has requested Météo France to design reliable, appropriate and cost-efficient “all-weather” technical solutions to detect, quantify and alert on the presence of low-level wind shear at a number of French airports.
