Short summary
Measuring the phase (liquid and ice) of Arctic clouds is essential for understanding the changing global climate. Using a lidar, two polarized signals are usually needed. At CRL lidar, one of these signals is small, so phase measurements have low resolution. Another method can use a large unpolarized signal in place of the small polarized signal. We show how to use the original low-resolution measurement to calibrate the new high-resolution method. At CRL, this gives 20 times higher resolution.
