The cloud mask was adjusted to conform with MODIS instrument performance; feedback from the land, ocean, and atmosphere groups using the mask have been positive. The UW cloud and clear sky properties have successfully been compared to those from HIRS and GOES; adjustments to the ozone code is still pending.

ATBDs for the cloud mask, cloud properties, and atmospheric profiles were revised and resubmitted. The cloud mask algorithm was simplified, validation strategies were considered. Software to interface the MODIS scan cube with the Wisconsin tool kit was investigated. Two new members of the UW MODIS team were hired in October, Liam Gumley, who is.

Investigation of Cloud Properties and Atmospheric Profiles with Modis By Steve Ackerman, Richard Frey, Chris Moeller, Dan Laporte, Paul Menzel, Walter Wolf, Kathy Strabala, Liam Gumley .   Cloud detection is fundamentally a function of the contrast between the target (cloud) and background environment (e.g., ground or atmosphere). The MODIS algorithm relies heavily on contrast in several spectral bands, assigning confidence thresholds to a series of spectral cloud tests Cited by: A set of standard cloudy atmospheric profiles developed during the course of this investigation is also presented. The results lead to the conclusion that the MODIS multilayer cloud detection algorithm has some skill in identifying multilayered clouds with different thermodynamic phases. Get this from a library!
