Two types of wind lidar’s have recently become available for ground-based vertical mean wind and turbulence profiling. A continuous wave (CW) wind lidar, and a pulsed wind lidar. Although both types have been build upon recent 1.55 &My telecom fibre technology, there are significant fundamental differences between the two lidars temporal and spatial resolution capabilities. A review of the two lidar systems special and temporal resolution characteristics will be presented, and the implication for measurements of mean wind and turbulence in the lower atmospheric boundary layer will be discussed.
