Pulsed Doppler lidar at 2-micron wavelength is being developed at NASA Langley Research Center for meteorological and aviation applications. Technology developments are briefly described along with plans for airborne and spaceborne missions. Sample wind measurements are shown extending from the boundary layer to the free troposphere. Observations have been made of gust fronts, wind shear, nocturnal jets, thunderstorms, clouds, and precipitation.
