Short summary
Residual calibration biases affecting CALIPSO IIR Version 1 calibrated radiances in the Northern Hemisphere are analyzed and reduced through in-depth analysis of the IIR internal calibration procedure in conjunction with observations such as statistical comparisons with similar MODIS/Aqua channels.
