This document describes a procedure for estimating Ice Water Content (IWC) and
Effective radius using lidar derived extinction measurements and auxiliary
The general flow chart is given in the figure 1. Red boxes give the part of the
architecture corresponding to the present module.
This procedure use as an input the extinction at high resolution as processed by the
L2a Extinction procedure (A-EBD product).
