1. Introduction The vertical exchange of sensible heat (temperature), latent heat (moisture), particles, and trace gases between the surface and the lower troposphere has a strong influence on weather and climate and atmospheric composition, as well as on smog and haze conditions at the ground. Vertical exchange depends in a complicated way on surface characteristics and meteorological conditions in the planetary boundary layer (PBL). The mechanisms within the PBL and in the entrainment zone

information about the meteorological conditions are important for weather forecasters, climate studies, and aviation control. One of the high priority duties of observers is the description of the evolution of clouds, especially within the planetary boundary layer. However, automatic weather reports are becoming important because human observations are becoming more difficult to organize, especially during nighttime ( Aviolat et al. 1998 ). The cloud amount (sky coverage in octas) can be automatically
