spectra collected by in situ cloud and drizzle probes on the NSF–NCAR C-130 aircraft during VAMOS in the southeastern Pacific Ocean were used as input to the simulations of radar and lidar observations. The simulated radar and lidar observations were used for developing a retrieval method for estimating cloud microphysical products, namely, characteristic particle diameter and LWC. The practical applicability of the retrieval method was demonstrated using the radar and lidar measurements from CSET

sampling strategies and the mean conditions observed during CSET can be found within Albrecht et al. (2019) , Mohrmann et al. (2019, manuscript submitted to Mon. Wea. Rev .), and Bretherton et al. (2019) . A notable feature of the CSET campaign was the first deployment of the HIAPER W-band Doppler cloud radar (HCR), together with the high-spectral-resolution lidar (HSRL). These systems were included on the CSET GV deployment to remotely sense cloud and precipitation. A cloud and precipitation data

quantity, robust observations of precipitation remain necessary for untangling subtle cause and effect relationships using modeling studies (e.g., vanZanten et al. 2011 ; Blossey et al. 2021 ). During the Cloud System Evolution in the Trades (CSET; Albrecht et al. 2019 ) campaign in 2015, precipitating stratocumulus and cumulus clouds were observed by in situ probes as well as by a 94-GHz Doppler radar, and a 532-nm-wavelength high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) over the northeastern Pacific Ocean
