The design and operating principles of a new LATAN-3 sodar are described. The sodar is designed for measurements of vertical profiles of wind and the intensity of temperature fluctuations with high temporal resolution. The sodar can be used in investigations of atmospheric turbulence and coherent structures in the height range up to few hundreds of meters above the ground. The results of field tests of the sodar demonstrate a good agreement of the wind field characteristics measured by LATAN-3 and the local measurements on a meteorological tower.
