Abstract
Cloud microphysical parameters such as optical thickness, effective particle radius, and liquid water path are obtained by measuring reflected or emitted radiation at various wavelengths from visible to microwave spectral region. Individual methods have both advantage and disadvantage since the cloud radiative properties are dependent on the relationship between particle size distribution and wavelength of radiation. Therefore comparison of retrieved parameters between different remote sensing measurements is important. On the other hand, the combination of various types of sensor is quite effective to the retrieval of cloud properties. In this study, some issues on the comparison between satellite remote sensing and groundbased or aircraft observations are discussed and some ideas such as statistical method are presented.
