This dataset provides profile-based estimates of the height to the top of the planetary boundary layer (PBL), also known as the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL), in meters above mean sea level estimated from meteorological measurements acquired during ascending or descending vertical profile flight segments during NASA's Atmospheric Carbon and Transport - America (ACT-America) airborne campaign. ACT-America flights sampled the atmosphere over the central and eastern United States seasonally from 2016 - 2019. Two aircraft platforms, the NASA Langley Beechcraft B-200 King Air and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's C-130 Hercules, were used to collect high-quality in situ measurements across a variety of continental surfaces and atmospheric conditions.
