The implementation of state-of-the-art retrieval techniques of wind vectors and turbulence intensity (EDR) will be presented. They are applied to measurements from the fast scanning X-band radar during the UFO trials at Toulouse airport. It will be demonstrated which retrievals, both for wind vectors and EDR, give the most reliable results when applied in the most challenging cases, that is when there are clouds or when it is raining.
