MMA Memo #130

Velocity of Winds Aloft from Site Test Interferometer Data

M.A. Holdaway [1]

July 6, 1995

Keywords: phase stability, wind speed, Chile

MMA Memo 129 (Holdaway, et al. 1995) introduced the basic data reduction pathway for the NRAO site test interferometers. One of the secondary data products derived in Memo 129 was the velocity of the water vapor aloft. We demonstrate two quite independent methods of measuring the wind velocity aloft agree to 5-10%.
