  author={Steven A. Ackerman and Robert E. Holz and Richard K. Frey},
An assessment of the performance of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) cloud mask algorithm for Terra and Aqua satellites is presented. The MODIS cloud mask algorithm output is compared with lidar observations from ground [Arctic High-Spectral Resolution Lidar (AHSRL)], aircraft [Cloud Physics Lidar (CPL)], and satellite-borne [Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS)] platforms. The comparison with 3 yr of coincident observations of MODIS and combined radar and lidar… CONTINUE READING
