The atmospheric boundary layer (ABL), which directly responses to the surface forcing in one hour or less, is the lowest layer of the troposphere. The study of ABL height is significant for environment management and protection. A Scheimpflug lidar system based on the Scheimpflug principle has been developed to measure vertically the aerosol backscattering intensity, and the covariance wavelet transform (CWT) method is developed to calculate the ABL height from the atmsopheric backscattering signal.
