EUMETSAT – Operational Cloud Analysis Product
11 October 2006
The Cloud Analysis (CLA) product is an automatically generated product describing the total cloud amount and the cloud top temperatures for the image segments. It is derived from an internal Intermediate CLA product which provides extensive information about cloud properties or surface scenes for every pixel. Each segment contains information on the total cloud cover, and for each low-, mid- and high-level cloud band (cloud type, amount, phase; cloud top temperature and height).
