Wind profiler network for planetary boundary layer research

Understanding winds in the lower atmosphere is of great fundamental and practical importance.

This new wind monitoring network will help Australian scientists to better predict propagation of tropical cyclones, to improve the efficiency of wind energy production, and to better understand atmosphere-ocean interactions affecting weather and climate.
