Welcome

GLOW stands for Goddard Lidar Observatory for Wind. It is a mobile Doppler lidar system based on double edge direct detection technology. It consists of a molecular system at 355nm and a aerosol system at 1064nm.

GLOW merges atmospheric science with innovative new remote sensing methodologies. New lidar technologies are perfected during ground use in preparation for eventual use in air and space based wind measurement systems.
