Abstract

It is possible to retrieve vertical profiles of cloud microphysical properties, using radar reflectivity factor observed by CPR (Cloud Profiling Radar), which leads to better understanding of cloud radiative forcing. In this study, vertical profiles of cloud microphysical properties (e.g., effective radius, liquid water content, cloud optical thickness, etc,) retrieved from the ground-based FMCW CPR FALCON-I are estimated to evaluate sensitivity and accuracy of FALCON-I at the Hedo observation in 2008.
