Short summary
This work describes the science algorithm for the recently released CALIPSO level 3 stratospheric aerosol product. It is shown that the retrieved extinction profiles capture the major stratospheric perturbations over the last decade resulting from volcanic eruptions, pyroCb smoke events, and signatures of stratospheric dynamics. An initial assessment is also provided by intercomparison with the latest aerosol retrievals from the SAGE III instrument aboard the International Space Station.
