Workshop Summary

The meeting is intended to bring together the space-based wind lidar community to discuss the status of space-based wind lidar, provide updates on latest advancements relating to technology, performance, and impact of space-based wind lidar, investigate future wind lidar missions, and provide community feedback to NOAA and NASA on moving forward. The meeting will include invited presentations, contributed talks, and significant time for discussions. A tentative list of topics that will be addressed at the meeting includes the following:

  • Aeolus mission status and impact;
  • NOAA needs and plans for space-based winds;
  • NASA needs and plans for space-based winds;
  • Future wind lidar mission concepts;
  • Progress in space-based Wind Lidar science and technology;
  • Alternative techniques for global wind measurements and complementarity with lidar winds;
  • International efforts and collaborations;
  • Next steps

This meeting is hosted by NESDIS/STAR and sponsored by NESDIS/STAR and NESDIS/OPPA under the Technology Maturation Program.
