Short summary
Wind measurements in the middle atmosphere (MA) are crucial to our understanding of atmospheric processes. We have recently developed a new laser-based method to measure winds called DoRIS (Doppler Rayleigh Iodine Spectrometer) which is the only technique to monitor winds in the middle atmosphere quasi-continuously. We compare our measurements with rocket-borne measurements and find excellent agreement above 30 km. DoRIS can now be considered as a validated method to measure winds in the MA.
