Abstract

The correlation slope method relates the slope of the space-time covariance function at zero lag time to the crosswind component along a path via an integral equation of the first kind through the intermediary of a function of the distance between detectors. The integral equation is inverted to find the crosswind profile using the method of singular value decomposition. The effect of noise in the measurement of the correlation slope is considered, as well as the influence of finite detector separation. Some numerical results are shown.
