Paper Abstract

The planetary boundary layer (PBL) heights are derived from the CALIOP/CALIPSO level-1B attenuated backscatter profile using the wavelet transform technique. The results are compared to those by the radiosonde and ground-based lidar coincident measurements. The comparison generally indicates the good agreement and the correlation coefficient is greater than 0.7. In addition, we found the good consistence between the CALIOP-derived PBL height and the selected aerosol-layer-top of CALIPSO level-2 aerosol-layer products (5-km average). Finally, the spatial distribution of PBL heights and their seasonal differences are initially illustrated over the US continent.
