the elevated convective available potential energy (CAPE) and convective inhibition for specific source layers within/above the SBL (e.g., Grasmick et al. 2018 ) requires accurate temperature and water vapor profile observations. AERIs are able to make reasonably accurate water vapor measurements in the lowest 1–2 km above the ground, but the information content decreases markedly above this level ( Turner and Löhnert 2014 ). Additional observations, such as those from a water vapor lidar, can be

) suggested that an optimal combination of observations and assimilation of thermodynamic profiles is necessary for improved understanding of the planetary boundary layer. Developments of a small network of advanced differential absorption lidars (DIALs) to measure water vapor (e.g., Spuler et al. 2015 ; Weckwerth et al. 2016 ), calibrated aerosol ( Hayman and Spuler 2017 ) and temperature profiles ( Bunn et al. 2018 ) and the proposed Lower Troposphere Observing System (LOTOS) may aid in providing
