Doppler lidars are prospective means for long-range measurements of wind velocity in the atmosphere, based on the registration of Doppler frequency shifts in the radiation backscattered by moving aerosol particles. The development of coherent lidar systems based on CW and TEA CO2 and on Nd:YAG lasers is presented. Test results from the application of these lidars to atmospheric wind velocity measurements are discussed.
