Satellite retrieval of cirrus cloud microphysical properties is an important but difficult problem because of uncertainties in ice-scattering characteristics. Most methods have been developed for instruments aboard polar-orbiting satellites, which have better spatial and spectral resolution than geostationary sensors. The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) series has the advantage of excellent temporal resolution, so that the evolution of thunderstorm-cloud-top properties… CONTINUE READING
