Wind-Lidar-Campaign in preparation of the ADM-Aeolus Mission
For accurate weather forecasts for Europe it is crucial to capture the winds over the North Atlantic as precisely as possible. Scientists at the DLR Institute of Atmospheric Physics have developed an airborne prototype of a wind lidar (light detection and ranging) that is scheduled for deployment on a new European Space Agency (ESA) satellite for launch by end 2016.
