kazrarsclcloudsat > KAZR-ARSCL, reflectivities aligned with CloudSat Cloud Profiling RadarVAP Type(s) > Baseline

The KAZRARSCL-CLOUDSAT VAP applies reflectivity offsets to the KAZRARSCL product to align the reflectivities more closely with those observed by the well-characterized 95 GHz Cloud Profiling Radar of the NASA CloudSat satellite mission. The algorithm used to determine the reflectivity offsets is described in Kollias et al. (2019). It is important to note that the approach used is statistical and is not necessarily instantaneously representative of the reflectivity offset and/or drift for a singular event in the record.
