2B-CWC-RVOD

The CloudSat Radar-Visible Optical Depth Cloud Water Content Product (2B-CWC-RVOD) contains retrieved estimates of cloud liquid and ice water content, effective radius, and related quantities for each radar profile measured by the Cloud Profiling Radar on CloudSat. Retrievals are performed separately for the liquid and ice phases; the two sets of results are then combined in a simple way to obtain a composite profile that is consistent with the input measurements.
