Abstract

Cloud properties derived from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite by the ESA Cloud CCI project. The L3C dataset consists of data combined (averaged) from a single instrument into a global space-time grid, with a spatial resolution of 0.5 degrees lat/lon and a temporal resolution of 1 month.

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