Short summary
Polar mesospheric clouds are an upper atmospheric phenomenon of great interest in that they provide information about a previously inaccessible atmospheric region, the coldest of the planet. This paper provides the basis for converting raw radiance measurements of clouds, made by diverse satellite instrumentation, into a physically based quantity, the cloud ice water content. The new algorithm allows intercomparisons of data collected using diverse optical methods.
