2C-ICE

CloudSat Product Stats - Algorithm Developer Edition
The Cloudsat and CALIPSO Ice Cloud Property Product (2C-ICE) contains retrieved estimates of ice cloud water content (IWC), effective radius (re) and extinction coefficient for identified ice clouds measured by Cloud profiling Radar (CPR) on CloudSat or the CALIPSO Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP; hereafter referred as the Lidar). This 2C-ICE cloud product uses combined inputs of measured radar reflectivity factor from the CloudSat 2BGEOGPROF product and measured attenuated backscattering coefficients at 532 nm from CALISPO lidar to constrain the ice cloud retrieval more tightly than the radar-only product and to generate more accurate results.
