A scheme is proposed for utilising measurements of radiowave amplitude scintillation at two frequencies for remote sensing of wind speed and atmospheric turbulence parameters. The main advantage of the method is that all quantities are estimated solely from measured scintillation parameters without the need for secondary measurements. It is shown that the method yields results which compare well with other measurements.
