MEPROS toolbox

Accurate wind measurement is of particular importance for all kinds of meteorological forecasting with all its economic and social consequences. At present classical airborne systems as, e.g., balloons or aircrafts are about to be replaced by ground based sytems as SODAR or the emerging Radar Wind Profiler (RWP). But inadequate data processing must still be considered the most important shortcoming, which inhibits a wide implementation of these devices.

The basic need is the development of an improved data analysis, which allows a reliable reconstruction of three dimensional measurement of widespread wind fields. Thus the consortium aimed at providing a RWP, which delivers continuously reliable wind profiling data under all weather conditions.
