Paper Abstract

Using the idea of confidence level and different geographical ecotypes classification in the MODIS cloud mask algorithm, two kinds of test groups (visible and infrared) were combined. The method of cloud detection was introduced to give cloud mask input for thermodynamic phase recognition. The brief flow chart of cloud phase retrieval was also afforded. The MODIS composite image was presented and cloud top particle's phase distribution of the typhoon "Noguri"(Jun, 2002) was retrieved, comparing with the 1.38 thin cirrus detection. The analysis indicates that the technique of multispectral cloud phase retrieval can be applied in practice.
