Short summary
The FRESCO algorithm is a simple, fast and robust algorithm used to retrieve cloud information during operational satellite data processing. FRESCO retrieves effective cloud fraction and cloud pressure from measurements in the oxygen A band around 761 nm. In this paper, we propose a new version of the algorithm, called FRESCO-B, which is based on measurements in the oxygen B band around 687 nm. Such a method leads to more accurate retrievals for vegetated surfaces.
