top of the entrainment zone, that is, up to 3–4-km height in summer. Lidar also allows the observation of aerosol scattering properties throughout the PBL with adequate spatial and temporal resolution. However, for the investigation of aerosol fluxes, next to optical aerosol properties, which control the radiative impact of the aerosol particles and possible feedbacks on the wind field, microphysical parameters such as particle number and mass concentrations are of primary interest.

; Klipp and Mahrt 2004 ; Baas et al. 2006 ). In addition, the separation of the atmospheric variables into a turbulent component and a mean or slowly variable component can be ill posed, especially for statistics such as variances and fluxes for challenging conditions such as stable boundary layers ( Kaimal and Finnigan 1994 ; Mahrt 1998 ; Vickers and Mahrt 2003 ) and larger-scale forcing such as with a density current and a frontal passage ( Piper and Lundquist 2004 ). The standard analysis

Recent experiments with the very high-frequency (VHF) middle- and upper-atmosphere (MU) radar RASS in Shigaraki, Japan (located at 34.85°N, 136.10°E; 370 m MSL), have shown fluctuations in turbulent parameters, such as the turbulent spectral width σ t and kinetic energy

value of T is used. 4. IPT application to simulated cases In this section we would like to show the accuracy improvements achieved by including the elevation scans for the retrieval of temperature profiles. This is done on the basis of a simulation study for clear-sky situations when the strongest temperature variations are expected due to strong radiative fluxes at the surface. L07 have performed an extensive accuracy assessment of the IPT within an NWP model domain using zenith measurements
