Short summary
We characterized the height of the boundary layer (BLH) over New Delhi for almost a year using ground and satellite lidar measurements as well as model simulations. In the presence of multiple aerosol layers, the employed algorithm was very efficient. Due to prevailing meteorological conditions, the seasonal BLH cycle was slightly weaker than the one expected from the climatology. The aim was to assess the feasibility of the employed algorithm and compare the results to independent sources.
