The ambiguity of the ISCCP height assignment in part stems from the ambiguity in interpretation of a single-channel IR radiance, whereas much better height characterization is possible when more spectral information is used, as exemplified in a number of studies based on Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) data (Kahn et al.
Calculation of radiative fluxes from the surface to top of atmosphere based on ISCCP and other global data sets: Refinements of the radiative transfer model and the input data.
The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) cloud mask scheme employs combination data sets from sensors on board geostationary satellite and polar orbiting satellites resulting in a large spatial resampling of radiance data to a 25 km grid.
Section 2 describes the data used here and ISCCP cloud-type definitions.
International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) classifies clouds according to the cloud top pressure and cloud optical thickness [24], which is different from the cloud types determined from surface observations [25].
Observations from the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) are used to produce the longer-term (1983-2008) GEWEX-SRB satellite product.
ISCCP (International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project), HIRS (High Resolution Infrared Sounder), CLARA-Al (Cloud, Albedo and Radiation dataset), and MISR (Multiangle Imaging Spectroradiometer) are also shown though they currently do not extend through 2014.
