A new method using water vapor pressure (WVP) from a radiosonde profile to determine the cloud vertical structure for the tropical region is proposed in this paper. This includes both the cloud base height and the cloud occurrences at different levels in the atmosphere. Our study shows that the presence of clouds depends on the following criterion: the… CONTINUE READING
