The Feasibility of Optical Radar to Detect Clear Air Turbulence 660198

Pulsed ruby laser optical radars were used to examine the feasibility of turbulence detection in laboratory test chambers and afield. Many returns obtained showed evidence of particle concentration variations, but none were identified as interactions with either turbulence or correlates of rough flying. Calculations and recently reported experimental evidence show that c-w laser doppler optars might eventually measure wind velocity components and gust spectra.
