Cloud cover and height are derived from NOAA-12 and NOAA-14 advanced very high resolution radiometer (AVHRR) data taken over the Arctic Ocean for an 88 latitude by 308 longitude domain centered on the Surface Heat Budget of the Arctic Ocean (SHEBA) ship Des Groseilliers. Multispectral thresholds were determined subjectively and applied to each image, providing excellent temporal coverage during the May–July 1998 First ISCCP Regional Experiment Arctic Clouds Experiment (FIRE ACE). Mean cloud… CONTINUE READING
