will not contribute significantly to the cloud radiative forcing or heating rates. The bottom panels in Fig. 5 show the cloud phase classification for each of the six cloud types defined in this study. As expected, precipitation (drizzle/rain, orange/green colors) appears increasingly frequent from shallow and congestus to deep clouds, while midlevel, cirrus, and anvil clouds mostly consist of nonprecipitating cloud particles (liquid/ice). Table 1 shows the percentage of cloud profiles with
