Multiple Doppler Lidars have been co-operated in the NYC region during the summer of 2018 to provide detailed observations of the turbulent atmosphere especially during heat wave events. The co-operating Doppler Lidar observations allow for mean flows to be distinguished from complex flows so that a better understanding of the transport of air masses can be provided to investigate the fidelity of high resolution numerical weather prediction models that are being developed to interpret and model turbulence during such events.
