Each system contains an Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer for thermodynamic profiling and a Halo Photonics Stream Line Doppler wind lidar for kinematic profiles.

The ABB Extended range Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (ABB E-AERI) instrument is particularly noteworthy, in that it is adapted for Arctic temperatures.

The LABLE experiments had four primary scientific objectives: 1) to compare observations of mean and turbulent motions from Doppler wind lidars and sodars and to characterize their mean accuracy and sensitivity over a range of different environmental conditions (e.g., CBL vs SBL, high- vs low-wind speed conditions), 2) to assess the accuracy and reliability of temperature profiles measured with the Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI), 3) to obtain a better understanding of the structure and turbulent processes within the NBL and their interaction with larger-scale weather patterns, and 4) to investigate how turbulent statistics, such as variance and skewness profiles of vertical motions, vary with upwind land surface conditions.
The Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI) is an operational ground-based spectrometer that measures the downwelling infrared (3-19 [micro]m) radiance emitted by the atmosphere at a high temporal and spectral resolution (Knuteson et al.
