left: day/night changes in backscatter profile. Right: schematic of different fluxes interacting.

a Example of the diurnal development of a backscatter profile from a Lufft CHM15k ceilometer at the USDA-ARS Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed site in Tombstone, AZ. b Daytime feedbacks between surface energy fluxes, entrainment fluxes, land surface and vegetation conditions and state of the atmospheric boundary layer. The atmospheric boundary layer height (ABLH) separates the convective ABL from the free troposphere.
