Abstract: The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-GEO) archival data product contains monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) 1x1 gridded regional mean geostationary satellite (GEO) 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 ISCCP-D2like-GEO product is a 5-satellite, ... View entire text
