  • Planetary boundary layer (PBL) height detect by fractal dimension (FD) of three-wavelength lidar signals

    Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) is the important link between the earth’s surface and the free atmosphere. Determination of the PBL heights and the PBL structure is very important for understanding the dynamic of the PBL. The three-wavelength lidar signals can be used to calculate fractal dimension (FD). The the signal of fractal dimension could be used to get the PBL height.  The PBL height get from FD signal is compared with PBL height get from potential temperature (PT) and lidar range correct signal (RCS) (1064nm) .
