-Our scanning [[instruments:mira:mira|cloud radar JOYRAD-35]] is a pulsed Doppler radar which measures profiles of reflectivity, Doppler velocity, Doppler spectral width, and linear depolarization ratio at 35.5 GHz. From these, various macro- and microphysical properties of clouds and precipitation can be derived. In addition, we operate the 94 GHz FMCW cloud radar [[instruments:joyrad94:joyrad94| cloud radar JOYRAD-94]] which can resolve cloud structures down to a resolution of 5 m. For background information see the [[http://wiki.eg-climet.org/index.php?title=Cloud_radar|EG-CLIMET wiki]].+Our scanning [[instruments:mira:mira|cloud radar JOYRAD-35]] is a pulsed Doppler radar which measures profiles of reflectivity, Doppler velocity, Doppler spectral width, and linear depolarization ratio at 35.5 GHz.

-The [[instruments:wind_lidar|Doppler Lidar]] sends out pulses of light in the near-infrared part of the spectrum. The Doppler shift of the signal backscattered by aerosol can be used to infer line-of-sight wind speed within the boundary layer. Scanning in elevation and azimuth allows derivation of the full wind vector. For background information see the [[http://wiki.eg-climet.org/index.php?title=Doppler_Wind_Lidar|EG-CLIMET wiki]].+The [[instruments:wind_lidar|Doppler Lidar]] sends out pulses of light in the near-infrared part of the spectrum.
