The CLOUDMAP 2 project cloud products include cloud top pressure, height, phase, fraction, effective radius and optical depth derived using a variational analysis method applied to data from the Along Track Scanning Radiometer-2 (ATSR-2) over Europe. These data are the result of a contract to Eumetsat for application to the Spinning Enhanced Visible Infra-Red Imager (SEVIRI) and partly under the European Framework 5 CLOUMAP2 project.
This dataset contains Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) cloud radar products.
