Abstract

The Atmospheric Dynamics Mission Aeolus, an ESA Earth Explorer Core Mission launched in August 2018, carries the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument
(ALADIN) to obtain global observations of wind profiles.

The ongoing New European Wind Atlas (NEWA) project aims to create and publish a European wind atlas of unprecedented accuracy [2].

The measurement campaigns of NEWA have been massively instrumented with scanning lidars and meteorological masts to measure various meteorological
parameters [3]. The last of these campaigns occurred at the Alaiz mountain range, near Pamplona in Spain [1].

This study focuses on the comparison of wind speed retrievals between Aeolus (L2B, Mie channel) and the measurements derived from the ground-based instruments, as a part of the Aeolus Cal/Val activities
