1. Introduction The vertical motion of the atmosphere represents atmospheric dynamics ranging from small-scale turbulence in the planetary boundary layer (PBL) and inside clouds to various types of waves and the large-scale ascending and descending parts of meridional circulations. The measurement of vertical velocity (VV) in PBL is important for calculating air–surface transport of mass and energy. Vertical motion inside clouds affects cloud formation (e.g., Paluch and Lenschow 1991 ) and the
