Homogeneous isotropic turbulence (HIT) models are compared,
with respect to optimization of turbulence remote sensing.
HIT models have different applications
such as load calculation for wind turbines (Mann, 1998)
or droplet track modelling (Pinsky and Khain, 2006).
Details of vortices seem of less relevance for modelling `realistic measurements',
where the single purpose is to retrieve the eddy dissipation rate (EDR).
Without the need for modelling the vortices, a faster and simpler approach might be favorable.
The cascade turbulence model (CTM) is suggested.
The CTM solution is scale invariant and a fast solution for one-dimensional HIT modelling.
In this presentation modelled radar measruments for scanning mode (rotating antenna)
are compared for different HIT models.
The consequences for turbulence remote sensing optimization are discussed.
