Possibilities of the wind speed profiling along an observation path of a distant object from the analysis of a video sequence of images of the object are studied in this work. The method is based on the analysis of two neighbor frames of a video sequence of incoherent images. The wind velocity retrieved is compared with data of acoustic anemometers.
