He stated it's 1 KM MSL.
"However, the question of AGL or MSL depends on your model data output -
if it compensates the pressure height. GFS IIRC does not do that, so it
would be MSL.
To understand the calculation, you can check the original math from our
So in order to calculate 0-1 KM shear it has to be 0-1 KM AGL?
