Short summary
In this paper, we present a comparative analysis of the use of lidar-backscattered signals at three wavelengths (355, 532 and 1064 nm) to study the ABL by investigating high-order moments, which gives us information about the ABL height (derived using the variance method), aerosol layer movements (skewness) and mixing conditions (kurtosis) at several heights.
