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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
