Abstract:

Concurrent visible and infrared cloud imagery from four satellite sensors DMSP OLS, NOAA AVHRR, GOES VISSR, Landsat MSS have been intercompared. Inherent differences in cloud field analyses are noted due to sensor characteristics such as spatial and spectral resolution and scenesensor geometry. Digital data were manipulated to simulate one sensors data from that of another. Recommendations for further analysis of the collected data set are provided.
