This work follows the ferry lidar campaign in the Baltic Sea of Gottschall et al. 2018. The aim is to evaluate the applicability of scatterometer winds as a means to validate and/or the motion corrected lidar wind profile measurements. Initially, the scatterometer data was compared against the FINO-II meteorological mast data to assess their performance versus traditional, fixed, measuring stations. Initial findings show that in ideal conditions, both derived wind speed and direction of the lidar/satellite have a better correlation than that of the mesoscale model data (WRF), however is limited due to the availability of daily satellite measurements.
