The next-generation-synergetic-ground-based-observation-system is being developed to (1) understand the information content of space borne lidar signals and (2) construct continuous data sets of clouds and aerosols by using CALIPSO and CloudSat, ADM-Aeolus and EarthCARE satellites. The ground-based system consists of multiplefield- of-view multiple-scattering polarization lidar, direct- And coherent-Doppler lidars, multi-wavelength high spectral resolution lidar and Doppler cloud radar. CALIPSO lidar has been in operation since 2006. ADM-Aeolus and EarthCARE-ATLID are scheduled to be launched in 2018 and 2020, respectively. In addition, future space-borne coherent Doppler wind lidar is studied in Japan. The new ground-based system will offer unique opportunity to fill the gaps in different observation conditions among space-borne lidars. We also discuss the retrieval algorithms of clouds and air motion for the ground-based and space borne systems.
