Floating LiDAR

Two LiDAR principles that I have just heard about for the first time, floating LiDAR and LiDAR for wind measurements. I had no idea LiDAR could measure wind velocity - more data that I am probably throwing out and that could be reused... Apparently it uses LiDAR doppler shift to measure wind particles and is the next great thing for offshore wind measurements providing more info when choosing a site. I wonder what wavelength LiDAR they use?
