Paper Abstract

A cloud observational network is used to characterize cloud fields over a 120*120km^2 area in the Netherlands. The system consists of a network of stations for ground based remote sensing and a processing environment for AVHRR and Meteosat measurements. The aim is to obtain a detailed quantitative description of cloud properties within a gridbox of a climate model. Results are to be used for the improvement of parameterizations of clouds and cloud- radiation interaction in weather and climate models. Research will focus on the characterization of the variability in time and space of cloud properties. Currently the system is fully operational. Case studies are performed to investigate the individual instrument response to clouds and their correlation to other measurements. In this paper some results for 4 August, 1993 are presented.
