While this >3000 wind profile data set was obtained primarily for academic purposes (e.g. parameterization schemes for numerical models), the utility of such a data base for air pollution dispersion modeling or research on activities such as air drops is clearly recognized. The authors will be reporting on work funded by the USAF that utilizes TODWL wind profiles and the WRF model output to investigate the impact of high resolution wind measurements on Precision Air Drops (PAD) over complex terrain. This work builds upon earlier USAF funded studies by the investigators which focused on the impact of Doppler wind lidar measurements over the complex terrain near the Salinas Valley and Monterey, CA. A main goal will be to report on a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the capability of airborne lidar systems for PAD application and comparisons with current methods. This will include the impact on CARP and the determination of drop locations.
