On relatively clear days, the shadow cast by an isolated, optically dense cloud produces an effect which is similar in extent and magnitude to the adjacency effects associated with high-contrast ground albedo boundaries. We have used a Monte Carlo radiative transfer model to examine the intensity and its components, comparing the cloud shadow case with that… CONTINUE READING
