Abstract

Cloud properties derived from the merged series of AVHRR instruments on the NOAA-15 to NOAA-18 satellites by the ESA Cloud CCI project. The L3S dataset consists of data combined (averaged) from 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.
