Abstract: [1] A framework to retrieve ice water paths over a broad area by combining observations of surface cloud radar and satellite high-frequency microwave measurements in a physically consistent way is presented. The surface cloud radar provides the statistics of vertical distribution of ice water content, while the satellite retrievals use those statistics to broaden a point measurement to an areal measurement. This study seeks to improve retrievals by adopting newly available ice microphysical properties from re…
