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.
