Summary
Abstract: The MISR Cloud Fraction by Altitude product provides the frequency of cloud occurrence partitioned into different cloud top height bins at a global and monthly scale with a spatial resolution of 0.5 degree × 0.5 degree latitude/longitude and vertical resolution of 500 m. For each height bin,
the frequency of cloud occurrence of a region over a time period is represented by the temporal mean of the ... View entire text
