Paper Abstract

Combining stratus cloud measurements from a Kalpha-band radar and a microwave radiometer can give profiles of liquid water and droplet distribution. In addition, in drizzle, the radar measurements can be used to estimate drizzle parameters such as number concentration, liquid water, and droplet distribution.
