Executive editor
I agree with the handling editor Dr. Laura Bianco and the reviewer Dr. Frank Beyrich that this is a very good paper and that it is of general interest and relevance.
Short summary
Profile observations of the atmospheric boundary layer now allow for layer heights and characteristics to be derived at high temporal and vertical resolution. With novel high-density ground-based remote-sensing measurement networks emerging, horizontal information content is also increasing. This review summarises the capabilities and limitations of various sensors and retrieval algorithms which need to be considered during the harmonisation of data products for high-impact applications.
