The Atmospheric Boundary Layer (ABL), consisting of the bottom few kilometers of the troposphere, is a region with strong mixing of moisture and winds. This region's activity has a large impact on weather and climate models. In this study, we use a high resolution computer model: Large Eddy Simulation (LES). Statistics produced require a strong understanding of the height of the ABL. The purpose of this study was to create a method for determining this height accurately and consistently, as previous models demonstrated significant error.
