Abstract

Cloud properties derived from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Terra satellite by the ESA Cloud CCI project. The L3U datasets consists of cloud properties from L2 data granules remapped to a global space grid of 0.1 degree in latitiude and longitude, without combining any observations from overlapping orbits; only sampling is done. Common notations for this processing level are also L2b and L2G. Data is provided with a temporal resolution of 1 day.

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