ALADIN (Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument) on Aeolus is the first wind lidar in space. It is designed to probe the lowermost 30 km of the atmosphere to provide profiles of wind, aerosols and clouds along the satellite orbital path. The Level 2B product consists of pressure and temperature corrected Horizontal Line-Of-Sight (HLOS) wind profiles generated by ECMWF.
