Comparison of Saura DBS winds using instantaneous MAOA positions and IDI4 winds for 2 km altitude resolution during July 2017. The correlation and linear regression results are shown in the left and the two centered panels, respectively. For most heights a slope <1 indicates that larger amplitudes are seen for IDI4 than in the DBS winds. Larger intercept values may indicate biases within the methods, which is not seen here. The vertical dashed lines depict the mean for data taken from all heights. Noteworthy, upper heights have a better coverage than at 70 km. For reference, the mean wind and standard deviation for both horizontal components are shown in the right panel
