Title:Main Title: Mixing layer height April 2018 from remote sensing at Iquique
Description:Abstract: Mixing layer height and profiles of turbulence parameters for April 2018 from Doppler Wind Lidar installed at Iquique airport between March 2018 and March 2019. Mixing layer height is first height where standard deviation of vertical velocity variance drops below a certain threshold (see Schween et al 2014). Turbulence parameters of vertical wind speed like mean, standard deviation, skewness etc. are derived from vertical stare measurements by applying every 5minutes an gliding average of 30min length.

Lineage:Vertical stare measurements deliver vertical wind speed as a function of time (every 1sec) and height (every 30min). Every 5minutes a gliding average of 30minute length delivers turbulence parameters like mean, standard deviation, skewness etc. Values are corrected for noise by the method described in Lenschow et al (1999). Mixing layer height is the first height where standard deviation drops below a certain threshold, or reliable signals end or cloud is present (see Schween et al 2014).
