Short summary
Satellite-derived products must undergo data evaluation with reference data sets in order to identify any possible reasons of discrepancy or to assess their representativity. In that direction, data coming from CALIPSO satellite were compared with observations from the ground. We identified a CALIPSO underestimation that could be linked to an assumption in the satellites' algorithms. The proposed correction improves the performance and could enhance aerosol modeling.
