I joined the lidar group in January of 2012 and began a master's degree in Geosciences. My thesis research involved using the lidar to study the height of the convective boundary layer in Chico. I planned to compare the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) radar profiler, also in Chico, with the summer of 2012 lidar data. Objective determinations of boundary layer height from both systems were to be evaluated.
