2B-FLXHR-LIDAR

This algorithm derives estimates of broadband fluxes and heating rates consistent with liquid and ice water content estimates from the CloudSat Profiling Radar (CPR), CALIPSO, and MODIS. For each radar profile, a broadband radiative transfer model is used to calculate upwelling and downwelling longwave and shortwave fluxes at each CPR range gate from the surface to the lower stratosphere.
