Open AccessHere we analyze the impact of four planetary boundary-layer (PBL) parametrization schemes from the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) numerical weather prediction model on simulations of meteorological variables and ...
Inter-comparison of lidar methods for obtaining planetary boundary-layer height from a July 2012 monitoring campaign over the Iberian Peninsula in the framework of EARLINET Banks, Robert Franklin; Baldasano Recio, José María; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Sicard, Michaël; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (2013)
Open AccessThe depth of the planetary boundary-layer (PBL) is defined as the height of the inversion level separating the free troposphere (FT) from the boundary-layer (Stull, 1988). Reliable representation of PBL height is important ...
Performance evaluation of the boundary-layer height from lidar and the weather research and forecasting model at an urban coastal site in the North-East Iberian Peninsula Banks, Robert Franklin; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Baldasano Recio, José María (2015-11-01)
Open AccessWe evaluate planetary boundary-layer (PBL) parametrizations in the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) numerical model, with three connected objectives: first, for a 16-year period, we use a cluster analysis algorithm ...
Retrieval of boundary layer height from lidar using extended Kalman filter approach, classic methods, and backtrajectory cluster analysis Banks, Robert Franklin; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Baldasano Recio, José María; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2014)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThis contribution evaluates an approach using an extended Kalman filter (EKF) to estimate the planetary boundary layer height (PBLH) from lidar measurements obtained in the framework of the European Aerosol Research LIdar ...
Sensitivity of boundary-layer variables to PBL schemes in the WRF model based on surface meteorological observations, lidar, and radiosondes during the HygrA-CD campaign Banks, Robert Franklin; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Baldasano Recio, José María; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Papayannis, Alexander; Solomos, Stavros; Tzanis, Chris G. (2016-07-01)
Open AccessAir quality forecast systems need reliable and accurate representations of the planetary boundary layer (PBL) to perform well. An important question is how accurately numerical weather prediction models can reproduce ...
