NOAA Planetary Boundary Layer Heights (PBLH) derived from the NOAA/PSL 915-MHz Wind Profiler Radars

Project:

Summary

Planetary Boundary Layer Heights (PBLH) estimations derived from Wind Profiler Radars moments, for Lakeland (arv) and Prentice (prw) (year 2019, Julian days: ~177 to ~303) are included in this dataset. In the data files, some days have more estimations than others. For some hours it was impossible to accurately identify the PBLH, either because it was not well defined, or the quality of the data was too poor, or there was precipitation. PBLH estimation is performed only for daytime hours (i.e.: between sunrise and sunset).

A PBL automated algorithm was run on the wind profiler data. The results were then double checked by-eye to make sure the provided PBLH values are good. Please see the readme documentation and contact the author for further questions.
