Paper Abstract

Spaceborne remote sensing observations ar used to obtain better understanding of cloud properties and cloud physics. To validate and supplement the satellite observations, continuous cloud measurements have been made by a groundbased network (CDS) located in the Netherlands. The spatial and temporal variability of cloud cover has been compared extensively with collocated synoptic observations. Frequency analysis of groundbased and spaceborne radiometer signals identify cloud layer temperatures within the area. CDS provides a powerful database that comprise tow years of different atmospheric conditions, from which a.o. cloud cover, cloud top, cloud base, optical thickness, IR emissivity and LWP can be obtained.
