Paper Abstract

The statistical properties of cloud base height (CBH) time series have been studied in our previous works. Our interest here is focused on the investigation of their changes in time, reflecting changes in the evolution of the physical processes. Therefore in this study we use methods, describing qualitative time variations of the signal in terms of associated quantifiers. Their application gives us the type and the ranges of the signal correlations, reveals periodicity, assesses the predictability (on the basis of chosen long-term averaging time period T2) and detects deterministic regimes in the studied CBH time evolution. The data used in this study are recorded during the Southern Great Plains (SGP) (Oklahoma, USA) site of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program of the Department of Energy.
