Summary
Abstract: The ISCCP_B3_NAT data are the original radiance data, sampled to 30 Km and 3 hour spacing. The normalization of all radiances to a standard calibration makes these data a globally uniform set of measurements that can be used for detailed cloud process studies.

The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP), the first project of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP), was ... View entire text
