Short summary
This paper first describes the new version 2 Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) polar stratospheric cloud (PSC) detection and composition classification algorithm. We then present a state-of-the-art PSC reference data record and climatology constructed by applying the v2 algorithm to the over 11 years CALIOP spaceborne lidar dataset spanning 2006–2017. This work is part of a larger effort being performed under the auspices of the SPARC Polar Stratospheric Cloud Initiative.
