An error in the labeling of Fig. 1 has been discovered in Protat et al. (2010). The labeling between the radar-only and radar–lidar parts of the ice cloud microphysical retrieval was inverted. The new figure and caption should be as in Fig. 1 below. The discussion of Fig. 1 also needs to be slightly revised, since it relies on the previous wrong labeling of Fig. 1 in Protat et al. (2010). The new Fig. 1 shows that the radar-only part of the Delanoë and Hogan (2008) retrieval actually dominates the statistics below 12-km height. However, we still believe that although the radar–lidar part of the retrieval is not the dominant part in the statistics below 12 km, the ground-based retrievals can be taken as the reference for the evaluation of the CloudSat ice microphysical products. The main reason for that is that the Delanoë and Hogan (2008) radar-only retrieval is an adaptive procedure, which makes use of the radar–lidar part of the retrieval to refine the radar-only retrieval on a cloud-to-cloud basis. It is also clearly obtained in Protat et al. (2010, see their Fig. 5) that the radar–lidar and radar-only parts of the Delanoë and Hogan (2008) retrieval methods do produce very similar statistical microphysical properties, in much better agreement than between the ground-based and CloudSat ice microphysics retrievals.
