Abstract

The Canadian (London, Ontario) VHF Atmospheric Radar (CLOVAR) windprofilerradar near London, Ontario is a relatively new tool for atmospheric wind measurements (Hocking, 1994, 1997a). In order to verify its proper performance, vertical profiles of horizontal winds were compared with other wind estimates available during the period January 1996 to November 1997. Comparisons with co-located radiosonde flights (a series of 29 flights in May-June 1996, and another of 8 flights in May-July 1997) showed excellent agreement between the two techniques. In addition, comparisons with horizontal winds measured by routine radiosonde balloons launched some 180 km south-west of London, at White Lake (Detroit), and some 210 km east of London at Buffalo Airport, showed good agreement, considering the meteorological differences which would be expected at these ranges. A further comparison between windsmeasured with the radar, and winds extracted for London from Canadian Meteorological Centre (CMC) regional analyses, showed very good agreement. These favourable intercomparisons have verified that the CLOVAR is a reliable tool for observing horizontal winds, and have provided interesting insight into the CMC model.
