Caption: Figure 5: (a) Horizontal distribution of the cloud top temperature of single-layer cloud over China and surrounding areas; (b) PDF of the cloud top temperature of single-layer cloud over Tibetan Plateau (TP) and East China (EA).
Many studies used cloud top temperature (CTT) to estimate vertical profiles of effective radius or other cloud properties inside the cloud (e.g., [3, 4, 33-35]).
(5) Cloud top temperature (CTT) is a valid estimator for the meteorological state.
Moreover, cloud top temperature also depends in a highly nonlinear way on microphysics and the environmental buoyancy.
As outlined above, the cloud top temperature is used to reflect the meteorological state, that is, the development of the clouds.
(iii) Deep convective precipitation characterized by reflectivity ([Z.sub.max]) > 40 dBz and cloud top temperature < 0[degrees]C
In a cloudy sky, OLR usually depends on the highest cloud top temperature and cloudiness.
AIR found cloud top temperatures of strongest thunderstorms as cold as or colder than minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius) circling the centre and in a large band east of the centre.
Figure 4 shows the simulated cloud top temperatures from June 27 to 28, 2015.

A software program enabling students to perform various functions such as image animation, coloring by temperature or brightness, displaying cloud top temperatures, and superimposing an infrared image on a visible image has also been developed.
