Resumen

This work aims to estimate the planetary boundary layer height from data of a wind Doppler lidar in the south of Brazil, and compare its results to radiosonde and Hysplit model data. By means of this comparison is expected to acquire a better comprehension about wind Doppler lidar skills and limitations applied in environmental science.
