Short summary
The current paper presents the new MODIS Collection 6 (C6) cloud thermodynamic phase classification algorithm. To evaluate the performance of the C6 cloud phase algorithm, extensive granule-level and global comparisons have been conducted against the heritage C5 algorithm and CALIOP. A wholesale improvement is seen for C6 compared to C5.
