Doppler weather radars can be employed to determine wind profiles at a high temporal resolution. Several algorithms and quality ensuring procedures for the extraction of wind profiles from radar volume data have been published. A comparison and verification of the extracted wind profiles has been performed at KNMI. The verification results indicate that weather radars can provide high-quality wind profiles.
