Cloud vertical profile data

by krishnaap » Mon May 11, 2020 4:02 am America/New_York

Dear Earthdata community, I would like to know is there any vertical cloud profile dataset available other than CALIPSO? I am facing a lack of spatial coverage considering daily data from CALIPSO, is there any other datasets showing cloud vertical profile on daily basis?

There are a few options that may be of interest to you for your research.

ASDC's The Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) - L1b & L2:
The Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS), is a lidar remote sensing instrument that will provide range-resolved profile measurements of atmospheric aerosols and clouds from the International Space Station (ISS). https://asdc.larc.nasa.gov/project/CATS-ISS

ICARE Cloud-Aerosol-Radiation
The ICARE Thematic Center was created in 2003 by CNES, CNRS, the Nord-Pas-De-Calais Regional Council, and the University of Lille, to provide various services to support the research community in fields related to atmospheric research, such as aerosols, clouds, radiation, water cycle, and their interactions. ICARE's initial emphasis is the production and distribution of remote sensing data derived from Earth observation missions from CNES, NASA, and EUMETSAT.
