EPA is in the process of developing comprehensive QA/QC guidance on the use of sodars, radars, and RASS for regulatory applications. This document will be based on methods and data obtained from past research studies. It will also be based on results from a recent experiment which is described in Section 2. Section 3 briefly discusses the issues of siting, installation, acceptance testing, calibration, performance audits, routine operation and maintenance, tear down, data processing techniques, and expected performance statistics as a function of atmospheric conditions and sensor configuration. A summary is given in Section 4.
