Abstract:

The atlas was prepared from data acquired during the period January 1, 1967, through December 31, 1970. Picture signals were computer processed to prepare hemispheric charts of monthly, seasonal, semiannual, and annual charts of relative cloud cover, in octas, over both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Similar presentations of tropical cloudiness are included. This atlas is one of the first attempts to use satellite data in the preparation of a climatology of daytime cloudiness over the globe.
