Climatology of the planetary boundary layer below 850 hPa will (in more detail) be presented in part 2. The climatology is based on analysis of twenty years ERA-interim 1989-2008 and on observations. ERA-Interim is a recent reanalysisproject of the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecast ECMWF.
