Evaluation of configuration of Doppler Wind Lidar using OSSEs
In this paper advantage and disadvantage comparison among direct detection, coherent detection, the Optical Autocovariance Wind Lidar (OAWL), polar orbit, ISS orbit will be discussed.
In order to evaluate DWL, Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) have been conducted. Using OSSE is the most reliable strategy today to assess the quantitative impact from prospective observing systems. OSSE were conducted using Joint OSSE Nature Run produced by the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). DWL data were simulated by Simpson Weather associates. A simulation of basic observations for control experiments was completed by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and Joint Center for Satellite and Data Assimilation (JCSDA and shared with the Joint OSSE community.
