lidar on the Cloud–Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO), and 6) Polarization and Anisotropy of Reflectances for Atmospheric Sciences coupled with Observations from a lidar (PARASOL). Although ISCCP observations are available over the longest period (1983–present) of any of the satellite datasets, MODIS (2002–present), and MISR (2000–present) observations are derived from more sophisticated passive retrievals based on more angles (MISR) and more spectral bands (MODIS

with the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP; Adler et al. 2003 ), the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) Merged Analysis of Precipitation (CMAP; Xie and Arkin 1997 ), and the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM; Huffman et al. 2007 ) 3B42 product. For cloud quantities, we compare to a combined CloudSat spaceborne radar and Cloud–Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) spaceborne lidar cloud fraction dataset ( CloudSat ; Kay and Gettelman 2009
