Short summary
The performance of the lidar measurements in comparison with radio soundings generally shows small RMSD (bias) for wind speed of around 1 m s−1 (0.1 m s−1) and for a wind direction of around 10° (1°). The post-processing of the non-motion-stabilized data shows comparably high quality to studies with motion stabilized systems. Ship-based doppler lidar measurements can contribute to filling the data gap over oceans, particularly in polar regions.
