In this study, we focus on the retrieval of liquid and ice-phase cloud microphysics from spaceborne and ground-based lidar-cloud radar synergy. As an application of the cloud retrieval algorithm developed for the EarthCARE satellite mission (JAXA-ESA) , the derived statistics of cloud microphysical properties in high latitudes and their relation to the Arctic climate are investigated.
