The Doppler Lidar Wind value-added product (DLPROF-WIND VAP) calculates profiles of horizontal winds from plan-position-indicator scans that are performed several times per hour. These wind measurements in the atmospheric boundary layer are particularly important for modeling pollutant and aerosol transport.
