Description: Consulting Meteorologist, Hamburg, Germany. The technique of atmospheric temperature profiling by Doppler-RASS is discussed. The set up with bi-static (separated transmit and receiving) antennas implies a range dependent scattering angle. The retrieval scheme developed by Kon for such antenna geometry is reviewed and its limits of validity are discussed. Empirical tuning of the efficient antenna aperture is proposed to fit the retrieved temperature profiles to reality. Examples of application of the measuring technique for atmospheric boundary layer characterization are presented.
