Abstract: In this paper, the authors present the preliminary methods for detection of the boundary layer based on backscattered signals from a mobile LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) developed at Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) National Laser Centre (NLC), Pretoria (25.5º S; 28.2º E), South Africa. They've concentrated on two different methods, such as (a) statistical and (b) slope. The preliminary study concludes that the statistical method provides a reasonable temporal evolution of the boundary layer height in comparison with the slope method.
