ETL Radar-based Cloud Microphysics Retrievals [Shupe, M., and T. Uttal]



Cloud microphysical properties are derived from retrieval techniques that combine ground-based radar and radiometer measurements from the SHEBA ice camp. Retrieved parameters include: particle size, water content, water path, particle concentration, and optical depth for all-ice, all-liquid, mixed-phase, and precipitating cloud types. The companion radar and radiometer files on which these retrievals are based are also available in the NCAR-EOL data archive.
