Abstract

Cloud properties derived from the merged series of MODIS instruments from NASA's Aqua and Terra 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.
