needed to investigate BL processes in detail. These are extremely relevant for assessing the performance of NWP models, as well as for investigating the potential for data assimilation of such observations. Therefore, we describe an instrument combination method which is capable of continuously profiling the lower troposphere with special emphasis on an accurate boundary layer description. The technique described here is an advancement of the integrated profiling technique (IPT) described and

1. Introduction Precise forecasting of the formation, evolution, and erosion of fog and low stratus is a major challenge for meteorology, especially in complex topography. One of the goals of the COST 720 Temperature, Humidity, and Cloud (TUC) winter experiment undertaken in Switzerland in 2003/04 ( Ruffieux et al. 2006 ) was to provide a dataset for determining the base and top of low clouds using a simple combination of ground-based remote sensing instruments. Frequent and detailed
