Short summary
The current study presents an automated method to classify coherent structures near the surface, based on the observations recorded by a single scanning Doppler lidar. This methodology combines texture analysis with a supervised machine-learning algorithm in order to study large datasets. The algorithm classified correctly about 91 % of cases of a training ensemble (150 scans). Furthermore the results of a 2-month classified dataset (4577 scans) by the algorithm are presented.
