The number concentration of cloud particles is a key quantity for understanding aerosol-cloud interactions and describing clouds in climate and numerical weather prediction models. In contrast with recent advances for liquid clouds, few observational constraints exist on the ice crystal number concentration (Ni). This dataset provides a new satellite product of Ni obtained from combined lidar-radar measurements from the A-Train.
