The Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) lidar, onboard the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) satellite, has been providing a near continuous record of high-resolution vertical profiles of clouds and aerosols properties since the summer of 2006. Key to the generation of these vertical profiles is proper calibration of the 532 nm and 1064 nm channels. This abstract summarizes improvements to the calibration techniques used to calibrate the 532 nm and 1064 nm signals for the recent version 4 (V4) Lidar Level 1 data release.
