Description
Sound Detection and Ranging (SODAR) is sound-wave transmitting
and receiving equipment operated on principles analogous to
those of radar; measures vertical profiles of the mean and
turbulent properties of the sound to heights of several hundred
meters by transmitting acoustic waves upward and measuring the
Doppler shift in the backscattered acoustic signals.
