Ad-Hoc Mixing Layer Height Working Group

The Ad-Hoc Mixing Layer Height Working Group gathers leaders in government and academia engaged in remote sensing, meteorology and air quality management/forecasting, with the opportunity to learn and provide feedback on the development/strategy of mixing layer height retrievals/algorithms and observations.
