Abstract

Comparisons of horizontal wind component measurements from a rawinsonde and a UHF wind profiler radar, obtained twice daily over a period of nearly 2 years (from mid-January 1984 through October 1985), showed differences with a standard deviation of about 2.5 m s−1, mainly due to meteorological variability in the winds.
