Abstract
Lack of global wind data is a major limitation to progress in both meteorology and atmospheric science. Current observing networks are incapable of meeting this requirement so users must look to space-borne instrumentation; whence the interest in Doppler wind lidars which could provide winds in cloud free air globally. This paper seeks to relate the provision of such instruments to user requirements for global winds, outlining some of the relevant activities of the European Space Agency.
