from warm cloud tops in some climate regimes. The relationship between the DER profile and the raining process can also help with research concerning the aerosol indirect effect. All previous investigations utilized the DER retrieved from a single NIR channel to study the effect of aerosols on cloud DER and raining. However, the DER retrieved from a single channel is biased toward the cloud top. Aerosols generally have more effect on the cloud base. The DER at the cloud base and the DER profile are
