NASA’s Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) mission is scheduled to release version 4 of their level 2 data products in the fall of 2016.  This presentation will highlight some of the many significant improvements delivered by the version 4 CALIPSO lidar cloud and aerosol data products, with a particular focus on the retrieval of extinction-to-backscatter ratios for both ice clouds and water clouds.
