~~ ABSRACT-An analysis is made of the annual and seasonal frequency of location and movement of maximum brightness (cloudiness) bands of substantial extent appearing on the Southern Hemisphere 5-day-averaged satellite data; the possible relation of such bands to the hemispheric long-wave pattern is discussed. The number of bands over the hemisphere for a particular 5-day period varies with latitude and season, but a high frequency of 3-4 is observed at midlatitudes in all months. Three years of… CONTINUE READING
