We developed an algorithm to derive extinction coefficients for four aerosol components (water-soluble, dust, sea salt, black carbon) from Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) data. The algorithm was applied to the nine-year data for 2007–2015 and the results were compared to CALIOP standard product (CALIOP-ST) and MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) standard product (MODIS-ST). Comparisons of the total aerosol optical thickness (AOT) showed that MODIS-ST was the largest, followed by CALIOP-ST (Ver.4), and our product. CALIOP-ST (Ver.3) showed a similar magnitude to ours.
