The cloud vertical structure, including top and base heights, layer thickness, and the characteristics of multilayered clouds, has been examined by Wang et al. (1995) by using radiosonde data. Cloudy layers are identified by relative humidity (RH) values above a threshold value of 84%. Cloud-layer top and base are identified by sudden changes in RH. These changes are positive at the base and negative at the top. The use of a constant threshold value for RH might misclassify clear moist layers… CONTINUE READING
