Model intercomparison are one method to gain confidence in Large Eddy Simulation (LES) as a viable tool to study turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer. This paper discusses the set-up and results of two intercomparison cases focussing on the stably stratified nocturnal boundary-layer. Furthermore, options for the specification of new intercomparison cases based on data, but with less complex forcings are discussed.
