The Scintec Flat Array Sodars are acoustic phased array wind profilers.
Sodars vertically emit sound pulses and derive the output information
form the frequency and amplitude of the atmospheric echoes. Besides
wind speed and direction, a variety of information is provided about
the characteristics and structure of boundary layer turbulence.
The Scintec AP-series are phased array radar wind profilers. Radar
wind profilers analyse the frequency and amplitude of electromagnetic
pulses which are reflected from the atmosphere. Besides wind speed
and direction, turbulence characteristics and information about
the atmospheric structure are derived.
