MLS and CALIOP Cloud Ice Measurements in the Upper Troposphere: A Constraint from Microwave on Cloud Microphysics
Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology
This study examines the consistency and microphysics assumptions among satellite ice water content (IWC) retrievals in the upper troposphere with collocated A-Train radiances from Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) and lidar backscatters from Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP). For the cases in which IWC values are small (,10 mg m 23 ), the cloud ice retrievals are constrained by both MLS 240-and 640-GHz radiances and CALIOP 532-nm backscatter b 532 .
