An eye-safe, micro-pulse Mie Lidar system has been used for studying the internal boundary layer in Hong Kong. The system is housed in a small van for mobility allowing for field measurements at various sites and also allowing quick deployment during events of interest, for example, air pollution episodes. Aerosol loading and boundary layer height have been examined at several sites for each season of the year, and results compared with radiosonde and a mesoscale numerical model. The diurnal variations of the boundary layer height have also been observed.
