EUMETSAT - Cloud Top Height (CTH)
Entry ID: EUMETSAT_CTH


Summary
Abstract: The Cloud Top Height product estimates the height of the cloud tops specified
in eight vertical intervals with a resolution of 1500 m. The CTH values are
extracted for image sub-areas of 3x3 IR pixels (superpixels) which represents a
horizontal resolution of 15 km at the SSP and about 22 km in southern Europe.
The product is transmitted via METEOSAT in the form of a WEFAX picture and is
generated for the hours at 02, 08, 14, 20. The product is primarily used for
aviation meteorology.
