Short summary
This paper describes comprehensive upgrades to the algorithms used to retrieve altitude-resolved profiles of cloud and aerosol extinction coefficients from the elastic backscatter measurements made by the space-based CALIPSO lidar. The CALIPSO version 4 data products generated by these new algorithms are explored in detail, and the many areas of improvement are highlighted using extensive comparisons both to previous versions and to collocated measurements made by space-based passive sensors.
