Abstract: The CSIR-NLC mobile LIDAR has been operated at the University of Pretoria during October 2008 for a better understanding of the atmosphere's boundary layer evolution and aerosol (solid particles suspended in the air) concentrations. The experimental data was collected over 23 hours. The above data sets were used to determine the retrieved relative humidity and compared with Irene (near to Pretoria) weather balloon humidity measurements. The results of the comparative study are presented in this paper.
