Abstract

Cloud properties derived from the AVHRR instrument on NOAA-15 by the ESA Cloud CCI project. The L3U datasets consists of cloud properties from L2 data granules remapped to a global space grid of 0.1 degree in latitiude and longitude, without combining any observations from overlapping orbits; only sampling is done. Common notations for this processing level are also L2b and L2G. Data is provided with a temporal resolution of 1 day.

This dataset is version 1.0 data from Phase 1 of the CCI project.
