vapor profiles but clouds, which often occur in dynamic weather conditions, obscure the BL because clouds are usually optically thick in the infrared. Since ground-based MWRPs require periodic manual calibration, systematic biases in the calibration (e.g., Paine et al. 2014 ) can occur that impact the retrieved thermodynamic profiles (e.g., Löhnert and Maier 2012 ), and they have only limited information content, resulting in poor vertical resolution ( Löhnert et al. 2009 ). Ground-based infrared
