Short summary
In this paper we study the effect of different methods to derive the radial wind speed from a lidar Doppler spectrum. Numerical simulations and experimental results both indicate that the median method has slight improvements over the centroid method in terms of turbulent attenuation and also showed the lowest root mean squared error. Thus, when the aim is to reduce the volume averaging effect and obtain time series with a high temporal resolution, we recommend using the median method.
