Review of submitted manuscript "Organized Variations in MBL Cloud Microphysical Properties Observed by Aircraft and Satellite and Simulated by Model" This manuscript investigates aerosol-cloud interactions in marine boundary layer clouds using two case studies from the ACE-ENA field campaign. Each case is split into two regions. Through analysis of aircraft observations, and the inclusion of a WRF simulation modeling one of the cases, the authors conclude that 1) aerosol differences between
