Short summary
The automatic detection of the planetary boundary layer height (PBL height) by means of lidar measurements still presents difficulties. This work shows an improvement in the PBL height detection using lidar depolarization measurements. To our knowledge, it is the first time that the lidar depolarization technique is used for this purpose. Also, the PBL height derived from the WRF model is compared with the PBL heights of this new method and from a microwave radiometer during CHARMEX campaigns.
