Presently available methods for the determination of the mixing-layer height from surface-based acoustic, optical and electro-magnetic remote sensing are summarized and compared. Most complete information on the structure of the ABL can be expected from a combined use of acoustic together with optical or electromagnetic remote sensing.

Gegenwärtig verfügbare Methoden zur Bestimmung der Mischungsschichthöhe mit bodengebundenen akustischen, optischen und elektro-magnetischen Fernerkundungsverfahren werden vorgestellt und verglichen. Der größte Informationsgewinn kann durch den parallelen Einsatz der akustischen mit der optischen oder der elektro-magnetischen Fernerkundung erwartet werden.
