triple-Doppler analysis

A radar analysis technique that makes use of radial velocity measurements by three or more Doppler radars to deduce the three-dimensional velocity vector of radar echoes.

Such observations allow more accurate determination of the three-dimensional velocity than dual-Doppler analysis, which requires additional assumptions about boundary conditions to estimate the vertical velocity component.
