Short summary
With a new 4-year satellite-based data set, the cloud-free marine boundary layer (MBL) structure characteristics over the eastern Pacific region were presented and analyzed together with the stratiform cloud top as the cloudy MBL top. Results showed that the behavior of MBL decouple structure and drizzling and non-drizzling stratiform cloud tops was mainly controlled by the inversion near the MBL top. Results in this paper will be valuable to evaluate and improve model simulation.
