Description
Description: NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA, USA. This study presents an empirical relation that links layer integrated depolarization ratios, the extinction coefficients, and effective radii of water clouds, based on Monte Carlo simulations of CALIPSO lidar observations. Combined with cloud effective radius retrieved from MODIS, cloud liquid water content and effective number density of water clouds are estimated from CALIPSO lidar depolarization measurements in this study. Global statistics of the cloud liquid water content and effective number density are presented.

Summary
Global statistics of liquid water content and effective number density of water clouds over ocean derived from combined CALIPSO and MODIS measurements
