Mixing Layer Height Retrievals From MiniMPL Measurements in the Chiang Mai Valley: Implications for Particulate Matter Pollution

Urbanized mountain valleys are usually prone to episodes of high concentrations of air pollutants due to the strong interplay between mountain meteorology and synoptic weather conditions… This study presents the first time continuous measurements of mini–micro pulse LiDAR (MiniMPL) installed on the valley floor of Chiang Mai, providing vertical backscatter profile of aerosols and clouds from April 2017 onward.
