Errors in second moments estimated from monostatic Doppler sodar winds. I - Theoretical description. II - Application to field measurements
The present theoretical derivation for errors that arise in calculated second moments due to temporal and spatial separation between individual, three-axis colocated monostatic Doppler sodar systems requires as input the sodar monostatic geometric parameters, pulse repetition rate, pulsing sequence, mean wind velocity, and an estimate of the turbulence scale. The theoretical results thus obtained are used to correct turbulence parameters, in order to improve the statistical comparisons made with the sonic anemometers on the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory Tower.
