How does GEOS-5-based Planetary Boundary Layer Height and Humidity Vary across China?

Dr. Yidan SI and Associate Professor Shenshen LI, from the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth, Chinese Academy of Sciences, used ground-observed data to validate the GEOS-5-assimilated PBLH and RH released by NASA's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office. They found that, overall, the simulated RH was consistent with the statistical data from meteorological stations, while the simulated PBLH was underestimated compared to LIDAR data by a factor of approximately two.
