[1] In this article stereoscopically derived cloud top heights and cloud winds estimated from the Multiangle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR) are assessed. MISR is one of five instruments on board the NASATerra satellite. The cloud top height assessment is based on a comparison of more than 4 years of MISR retrievals with that derived from ground-based radar and lidar systems operated by the U.S. Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement program. The assessment includes a… CONTINUE READING
