Abstract
The influence is simulated of the atmospheric turbulent motion on the character and the accuracy of the radial velocity profiles recovered by using a high-range-resolution coherent-Doppler-lidar approach we have developed recently. The simulations are based on an original statistical spatio-temporal model of the turbulent radial-velocity fluctuations supposed to have a von-Karman-like spectrum that closely approximates the well-known Kolmogorov-Obulkhov spectrum. The results from the simulations confirm the basic conclusions we have analytically deduced formerly about the character of the recovered radial velocity profiles, depending on the duration of the lidar measurement procedure. In this way the model adequacy is also substantiated.
