Abstract: The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-Mrg) archival data product contains monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) 1x1 gridded regional mean cloud properties as a function of 18 cloud types, similar to the ISCCP D2 product, where the cloud properties are stratified by pressure, optical depth, and phase. The Mrg product combines daytime cloud properties from Terra-MODIS (10:30 AM local ... View entire text
