Cloud Structures with MERIS Data
This image of a "Karman Vortex" Structure (KVS) is one of the many
studies of cloud structures produced using the large archive of
optical MERIS data processed daily since 2002 by Brockmann Consult.
The data is analysed and classified into different cloud
Beyond the visual aspect of the cloud structure itself, the Cloud Structure
Project provides, as available, data on cloud
top height, cloud albedo, cloud
optical thickness, cloud type, and
statistical data, i.e. global occurrence, observation diagrams.
