Short summary
A retrieval method exploiting a synergy of radar, lidar, and microwave radiometer measurements is developed to simultaneously derive microphysical properties of cloud and drizzle in a physically consistent way. After successful tests with simulated scenes, this technique is applied to data collected in Cabauw, the Netherlands. Evaluation of the results shows that the retrieved cloud and drizzle properties are consistent with what is derived from multiple independent retrieval methods.
