Short summary
The cloud droplet size retrieval of POLDER is accurate even when the measurements are limited. The algorithm can be improved by (1) including the measurements in the primary rainbow region to provide accurate large droplet (>15 µm) retrievals; (2) performing higher-resolution retrieval (42 km × 42 km) to ensure more successful retrievals and reduce the bias introduced by cloud horizontal inhomogeneity.
