Abstract : A technique for obtaining a class of beam pattern is described which results in eliminating the Doppler spread effect of the mean transverse component of flow of scatterers. This is accomplished by weighting various array elements. This component of flow is typically the main contributor to Doppler frequency spread. With this component eliminated, the other contributor of Doppler spread is due to the turbulent or fluctuating scatterer motion on the scale of the scattering volume. This contributor is smaller of the two and is estimated by standard Doppler methods.
