2002: Retrieval of the spatial distribution of liquid water path from combined ground-based and satellite observations for atmospheric model evaluation.-Boreal Env. Res. 7: 265-271. ISSN 1239-6095 In the framework of CLIWA-Net, observations and model values of cloud properties are compared. The observations are obtained from a network of ground-based radi-ometers and polar orbiting meteorological satellites. The project includes a number of novel aspects among which the retrieval of the

This new approach results in a spatial distribution of LWP of optimum accuracy. A case study is presented, that demonstrates the added value of this approach for atmospheric model evaluation.
