Cesana, G., A.S. Ackerman, T. Vaillant de Guélis, and D.S. Henderson, 2021: Cloud-radiation interactions and cloud-climate feedbacks from an active-sensor satellite perspective. In Climate Impacts of Clouds: Radiation, Circulation, and Precipitation. S. Sullivan and C. Hoose, Eds. American Geophysical Union, accepted.

Clouds are ubiquitous in the troposphere. Their interactions with radiation may result in either a warming or a cooling of the Earth system and generate diverse climate feedbacks. The vertical structure of the radiative effects of clouds as well as the response of clouds to global warming (i.e., the cloud feedbacks) are inadequately constrained within the diversity of current climate models, which limits our ability to project the magnitude of future warming. In this chapter we show how relatively recent active-sensor spaceborne observations have narrowed constraints on cloud feedbacks. The value added beyond what can be retrieved from passive sensors is only just beginning to be exploited.
