Paper Abstract

The DGA (Delegation Generale de l'Armement) is interested in the determination of sky-ground characteristics. In particuliar, optical clouds properties as well as land-surface and sea-surface temperatures must be determined with accuracy. To obtain a statistical description of the cloud properties, we have created a cloud database called SALIC (SAtellite-LIdar-Clouds). Two algorithms, one for sea-surface temperature and one for land-surface temperature were recently included in the database. Three different kinds of measurements are used to built up the database: radiosoundings, ground-based lidar measurements, and satellite data obtained from the radiometer AVHRR3 boarded on the NOAA-16 polar orbiting satellite. This paper presents the results for a period covering two years.
