Cloud Type - Multimission

Abstract:
The CTY product is based on results from the SAF NWC Cloud Type algorithms for both polar and geostationary satellite data. The following five cloud classes are defined: Low clouds; Mid clouds; Opaque high clouds; Thin high clouds and Fractional clouds. Thus, the CTY results are given as five individual components. The resulting average value denotes the percentage of pixels of the appropriate class relative to all cloudy pixels in each 15x15 grid. The SEVIRI baseline (Europe), SEVIRI full Meteosat Disk, AVHRR baseline (Europe) and AVHRR Arctic are operational.
