Abstract

The thermal structure of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) is an important factor for the vertical diffusion of air pollutants. The sodar has proved to be a reliable tool for the continuous monitoring of the thermal structure of the atmospheric boundary layer sensing the temperature structure parameter. A recently developed algorithm based on image processing and pattern recognition techniques is used to automatically classify the atmospheric thermal structure (and to analyse various characteristics) leading to significant time saving and improvement of the classification. A one year long sodar facsimile record obtained with an 800 m
