Cloud grid information data

Abstract:
Cloud grid information data is derived from satellite image data observed by MTSAT-2/1R for local or aviation forecast operations. The elements of the information are as follows: total amount of cloud, amount of upper layer cloud, height of cloud top, amount of convection cloud (for cumulonimbus) and type of cloud. The dataset is provided in GRIB.
