Comments to the manuscript with ID number “acp-2021-812”
The authors used the airborne measurements of cloud radiative-feedback to explore “how and to what degree the macrophysical and microphysical cloud properties influence the cloud radiative effects of shallow trade-wind clouds”. By using a combination of the BACARDI measurements and GOES-16 retrievals, they showed that the cloud radiative-feedback is mainly driven by macro-physical properties of these cloud type.
The manuscript is well written and organized with clear scientific questions challenged and robust answers provided as summarized above. The authors also carefully discussed the limitations of their study and opened the door for future investigation.
With this, I would recommend the publication of this manuscript with minor revision.
