Measure wind velocity (not clear if turbulence is accounted)

Portable LiDAR unit boosts windfarm evaluation – gizmag Article

ZephIR is based on LiDAR technology (Light Detection and Ranging) and
works by measuring the Doppler shift of laser radiation back scattered
from moving objects in the air. The majority of systems currently
deployed are used for wind resource assessment, generating accurate
measurements which play a vital role in the investment decision
required before a new wind farm site can be developed.
