Abstract

We develop algorithms that can be applied to EarthCARE Cloud Profiling Radar (CPR) and Atmospheric backscatter LIdar (ATLID) and discuss about the expected products. EarthCARE will carry CPR and ATLID and these combination corresponds to the CloudSat and CALIPSO for the A-train. Due to the similarities between the EarthCARE and the A-train, it will be possible to apply the similar types of algorithms that have been already developed and extensively used for the analyses of the A-train satellites and it is therefore expected to obtain the similar cloud products for the EarthCARE. On the other hand, there are some differences between the EarthCARE and A-train satellites, e.g., the EarthCRAE CPR has better sensitivity compared with the CloudSat. And Doppler capability of the EarthCARE-CPR is a new element and is expected to provide the better constraint for the retrievals of cloud/precipitation microphysics. And the vertical air motion and sedimentation velocity of cloud particles will be inferred.
