Abstract

Sentinel 5 Precursor (S5P) was launched on the 13th October 2017 carrying the TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI). The TROPOMI/S5P cloud properties retrieval is based on the OCRA and ROCINN algorithms currently being used in the operational GOME and GOME-2 products. OCRA retrieves the cloud fraction using measurements in the UV/VIS spectral regions and ROCINN retrieves the cloud height (pressure) and optical thickness (albedo) using measurements in and around the oxygen A-band at 760 nm. For TROPOMI/S5P we use OCRA/ROCINN Version 3.0, which is based on a more realistic treatment of clouds as optically uniform layers of light-scattering particles. Additionally the cloud parameters are also provided for a cloud model which assumes the cloud to be a Lambertian reflecting boundary.
