CALIOP is a two-wavelength polarization-sensitive lidar that provides high-resolution vertical profiles of aerosols and clouds CALIOP utilizes three receiver channels: one measuring the 1064 nm backscatter intensity and two channels measuring orthogonally polarized components of the 532 nm backscattered signal. The main content of this product are attenuated backscatter profiles (https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/calipso/lidar_l1b_profile_table).
