- The airborne lidar and radiometers which were flown during the FIRE cirrus and marine stratus field experiments had multiple objectives. Cloud parameters of direct interest, such as cirrus infrared emittance or convective scales for marine stratus, may be derived from the observations and analyzed along with the available cloud physics and meteorological observations. Additionally however a stated goal of the FIRE studies was to validate satellite cloud retrievals. To this end a number of derived products are to be available from the basic lidar and radiometer observations. The characteristics of the derived products are described, and in addition analysis results for cloud radiometric and structure parameters are presented. This extended abstract will be used to describe the available data products and the associated presentation will emphasize case study analysis results.
