Short summary
Remote sensing devices known as lidars are often used to take measurements at potential wind farm sites. These instruments are however not optimized for measuring turbulence, small-scale changes in wind speed. In this manuscript, the impact of lidar configurations and atmospheric conditions on turbulence accuracy is explored. A new method was developed to correct lidar turbulence measurements and is described in detail such that other lidar users can apply it to their own instruments.
