The Front Cover

Over the last five years we have published several articles about lidar and sodar for wind measurements. Five years ago just a few people anticipated that lidar remote sensing systems would become so useful to the wind-power industry in such a short time. In this issue on page 7 we publish an article about the WindCube developed by Leosphere from France.
