Abstract: Data from the SABLES 2006 field campaign are used in order to analyse some of the main processes present along the nocturnal periods: surface-based inversions, low level jets, katabatic winds, wave-like motions, pressure perturbations, etc. These processes have an important influence on the vertical structure (both thermal and dynamical) of the atmospheric boundary layer, and can be better described with the synergetic combination of RASS-SODAR data and in-situ measurements (such as sonic anemometer data and high-resolution pressure series from microbarometers). It is shown how the different air masses and their evolution are easily identified when pressure and RASS-SODAR wind and temperature data are presented together. Likewise, periodic pressure fluctuations observed in the surface array of microbarometers reveal the existence of gravity wave motions whose propagation is better understood after locating the wave ducting layers with the help of RASS-SODAR average wind ant temperature profiles.
