In July 2004 a field trial was undertaken to simultaneously deploy two similar Doppler lidar systems with the aim of measuring the turbulence characteristics of the atmospheric boundary layer over an urban area. This paper outlines the characteristics of the lidar systems, details the deployment configuration of the lidars, and discusses the dispersion model parameters that can be obtained using this procedure. An error analysis is undertaken to highlight the possible problems associated with the derived data. A case study from the trial is shown to compare the dual-lidar derived data to dispersion model results from the NAME dispersion model.
