Comparison of Winds Derived From the LIMS Satellite Instrument With Rocket Observations

This report contains statistical comparisons of horizontal winds derived from the LIMS satellite instrument with wind profiles from a large number of meteorological rocket soundings. Several methods of determining winds from geopotential height fields are included. The results give an indication of the accuracy of horizontal wind fields computed from satellite data.
