Combination of lidar and radar observations to retrieve microphysical properties of boundary layer clouds using a new analytical approach.

Abstract : A case study analysis has been conducted on the diurnal cycle of boundary layer clouds observed at the IPSL station in Palaiseau (France) on the period from the 22 nd to the 26 th March 2004, during the CLOUDNET project. The cloud properties have been analysed using remote sensing (ground based radar and lidar), applying the Klett inversion method in a new way to retrieve microphysical properties of a stratocumulus cloud layer. Comparisons of results obtained on March 24 th at the end of the morning with satellite observations (MODIS) and with forecasts from three numerical models (METEOFRANCE ARPEGE, UKMO Unified Model and ECMWF) are presented and discussed here.
