Paper Abstract

The Atmosphere Boundary Layer is the most accessible layer of earth's atmosphere. It is also the most important layer to the atmospheric research. We measure the wind and turbulence profile in the ABL with a Doppler Sodar which can cover from 30m up to 300 500m, and a boundary microwave wind profiler, which can cover from 100m up to 3000m. With all these experimental sets, we can get the continuous profiles of wind, refractive index structure function parameter, Cn2 and the wind structure Cv2 from the ground up to 3000m. From the result of these sets, we can obtain the characteristics of profiles and diurnal variations.
