Kurzfassung

In the frame of the Atmospheric Dynamics Mission Aeolus (ADM-Aeolus) satellite mission by the European Space Agency (ESA), a prototype of a direct-detection Doppler wind lidar was developed to measure wind from ground and aircraft at 355 nm. Wind is measured from aerosol backscatter signal with a Fizeau interferometer and from molecular backscatter signal with a Fabry–Perot interferometer. The aim of this study is to validate the satellite instrument before launch, improve the retrieval algorithms, and consolidate the expected performance. The detected backscatter signal intensities determine the instrument wind measurement performance among other factors, such as accuracy of the calibration and stability of the optical alignment. Results of measurements and simulations for a ground-based instrument are compared, analyzed, and discussed. The simulated atmospheric aerosol models were validated by use of an additional backscatter lidar. The measured Rayleigh backscatter signals of the wind lidar prototype up to an altitude of 17 km are compared to simulations and show a good agreement by a factor better than 2, including the analyses of different error sources. First analyses of the signal at the Mie receiver from high cirrus clouds are presented. In addition, the simulations of the Rayleigh signal intensities of the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument (ALADIN) Airborne Demonstrator (A2D) instrument on ground and aircraft were compared to simulations of the satellite system. The satellite signal intensities above 11.5 km are larger than those from the A2D ground-based instrument and always smaller than those from the aircraft for all altitudes.
