This document describes the work done and the results obtained for Work Package (WP) 4 of the Vertical
Aeolus Measurement Positioning (VAMP) project. The objective of this WP is to investigate the quality of
the Level-2B (L2B) Horizontal projected Line-of-Sight (HLOS) wind results, in case of separate processing of
the Mie and Rayleigh channels, and in case they can be combined. Especially the benefit of Mie oversampling
(i.e. having multiple Mie range bins covering a single Rayleigh range bin) will be investigated in conditions
with large gradients in for example wind shear (i.e. vertical variation of the horizontal wind components)
and optical properties.
