Short summary
In this study we show the capabilities of combining different remote sensing systems (microwave radiometer – MWR, Doppler lidar – DL – and elastic lidar – EL) for retrieving a detailed picture of the PBL turbulent features. Concerning EL, in addition to analyzing the influence of noise, we explore the use of different wavelengths, which usually includes EL systems operated in extended networks, like EARLINET, LALINET, MPLNET or SKYNET.
