The aim of the present paper is to investigate the wake turbulence as based on advanced full-scale measurements which, for the first time, makes it possible directly to resolve all three turbulence components in the wake behind an operating wind turbine with high spatial- and temporal resolution. The experimental setup will be described, and analysis of selected runs will be presented with a focus on the expected inhomogeneity of this turbulence field. The analyses are performed in a meandering frame of reference, and in addition to afore mentioned wake turbulence field, the wake deficit field will be resolved and analysed. Atmospheric stability is not considered but is, however, not expected to contribute noticeably to wake turbulence nor to the wake deficit field when expressed in the meandering frame of reference.
