Multi-sensor cirrus optical depth estimates from CALIPSO

Abstract : Global measurements of cirrus optical depth are critical to assessing their radiative impacts and need to be validated. Comparisons of retrievals from different instruments and techniques can be very informative regarding the different sources of uncertainty. In this paper, we compare cirrus cloud optical depth estimates retrieved by the active (lidar) and passive (radiometer) remote sensing instruments aboard the CALIPSO satellite.
