The Experimental Measurement Campaign (XMC) for Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) Instrument Assessment (XPIA) is a DOE funded study to validate methods to make high fidelity measurements of the three dimensional wind fields of wind farm inflows and wake flows using remote sensing instrumentation. In addition, this study will validate measurements from the Texas Tech University Ka-band radars and the Axys Vindicator lidar. CSD deployed the High-Resolution Doppler Lidar (HRDL), and two Leosphere 200S acquired by NOAA (Dalek 1 and Dalek 2) instruments to the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory (BAO) tower located in Erie, Colorado.
