aeolus wind


Launched on 22 August 2018 Aeolus is the first satellite mission to acquire profiles of Earth's wind on a global scale These near-realtime observations will improve the accuracy of numerical weather and climate prediction and advance our understanding of tropical dynamics and processes relevant to climate variability

Global wind data from ESA's Aeolus satellite is now public

May 12 2020Wind profile from Aeolus How the wind influences the exchange of heat and moisture between Earth's surface and the atmosphere is an important aspect of understanding weather phenomena like climate change According to ESA's Peggy Fischer a huge amount of work went into perfecting Aeolus' data before the data was made accessible to the

ECMWF starts including Aeolus wind data in daily weather

Mar 25 2020The Aeolus satellite is the first of its kind as it is able to calculate atmospheric winds in cloud-free areas or winds throughout vertical wind columns To date satellites could estimate winds only from the movements of clouds leaving gaps in

AEOLUS (Aiolos)

AIOLOS (Aeolus) was the divine keeper of the winds and king of the mythical floating island of Aiolia (Aeolia) He kept the violent Storm-Winds locked safely away inside the cavernous interior of his isle releasing them only at the command of greatest gods to wreak devastation upon the world The hero Odysseus once visited Aiolos' isle and was entrusted with a bag containing

Backup Laser to Revive Aeolus Wind

Firing laser pulses from a satellite is the best way to measure wind velocity Thus the launch of the lidar-equipped Aeolus satellite last August marked a breakthrough in measuring wind speeds around the world from the ground to the stratosphere for use in weather forecasting and climate research Its first nine months proved its worth "The quality of the wind data is fantastic "

Offshore wind installation

Offshore installation vessel Aeolus which was purpose-built to construct offshore wind parks was put into service in 2014 With a top-range crane the Aeolus can lift more than 1 600 tonnes This makes the Aeolus suitable for the transport and installation of foundations and wind turbines It has an advanced jacking system

Aeolus wind mission ready for commissioning campaign

Aug 24 2018Aeolus wind mission ready for commissioning campaign Science Timeline/All News In cloud-free air ESA's Doppler wind lidar on board Aeolus will probe the atmosphere down to the surface of Earth or to the top of dense cloud providing data for climate research and improved weather forecasts including better prediction of evolving hurricanes


Abstract Soon after the launch of Aeolus on 22 August 2018 the first ever wind lidar in space developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) has been providing profiles of the component of the wind vector along the instrument's line of sight (LOS) on a global scale In order to validate the quality of Aeolus wind observations the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum

Improving new Aeolus wind data for forecasts

"Aeolus engineers and scientists are now investigating why such temperature differences cause wind biases and if the mirror temperatures can be controlled better " ECMWF will continue to work closely with ESA on ways to minimise such biases in Aeolus data which can be applied to future follow-on missions

Aeolus (Odyssey)

Aeolus was the son of Hippotes son of Mimas a son of Aeolus son of Hellen He was most frequently conflated with Aeolus the son of Poseidon god of the sea According to some accounts Hippotes married the same Melanippe who was the mother of Arne Like Aeolus the son of Poseidon this Aeolus was said to have had twelve children - six sons and six daughters

Airbus' Aeolus satellite supports weather forecasting amid

Aeolus is the world's first satellite to study the Earth's wind patterns from space to improve weather forecasting accuracy This unique mission provides reliable wind-profile information on a global scale to take meteorological forecast to the next step

Aeolus provides data on Earth's winds

May 14 2020Aeolus data will provide insight into how the wind influences the exchange of heat and moisture between Earth's surface and the atmosphere – important aspects for understanding climate change " said Mr Riishojgaard who was a member of the Aeolus Mission Advisory Group an expert body providing independent scientific advice to ESA

The Odyssey: Books 10–11

Aeolus presents Odysseus with a bag containing all of the winds and he stirs up a westerly wind to guide Odysseus and his crew home Within ten days they are in sight of Ithaca but Odysseus's shipmates who think that Aeolus has secretly given Odysseus a fortune in gold and silver tear the bag open


Aeolus was furious when he learned about the baby and sent Canace a sword with which to commit suicide In some versions of the story Macareus kills himself too Son of Poseidon The third Aeolus was the son of Poseidon the god of the sea The mother of this Aeolus was Arne who was the daughter of the earlier mythological Aeolus and Melanippe

Aeolus Cal/Val and Science Workshop

Introduction and Workshop Objective ESA's Doppler Wind Lidar Mission Aeolus was launched in August 2018 and successfully passed its commissioning phase in January 2019 The mission is an Earth Explorer providing vertical profiles of tropospheric and lower stratospheric winds for the improvement of numerical weather prediction (NWP) and atmospheric dynamics research


Aeolus was a name given to three mythical characters but their myths are deeply intertwined in such a fashion that the characters are often difficult to tell apart However the most famous of them was the son of Hippotes that is mentioned in Homer's Odyssey as the Keeper of the Winds in this myth Aeolus gave Odysseus a closed bag that contained all winds but for the gentle West Wind


Aeolus (ヘリオス Heriosu lit Helios) is the Biomatch for Biometal Model H and a boss character in Mega Man ZX Advent He is fought in the Floating Ruins Model H grants Aeolus many superhuman abilities such as wind manipulation the ability to dash at super speed and the ability to fly or hover for short periods of time

Aiolos is the god of the wind and the keeper of the Anemoi on his own island of Aeolia At the command of the gods he released these to wreck devastating storms Aiolos was titled Hippotades (the reiner of horses) since winds often thought of as horse-shaped spirits Aiolos' duties vary upon the myth Some myths say that he is the god of wind himself while other

The ADM‐Aeolus wind retrieval algorithms

The accuracy of the ADM‐Aeolus wind measurements and observations will depend primarily on the intensity of the backscattered laser light which in the Mie channel depends on the presence and optical thickness of clouds and the concentration of aerosol (Marseille and Stoffelen 2003) and in the Rayleigh channel it depends mainly on the
