Short summary
Presented here is the FAME-C (Freie Universität Berlin AATSR and MERIS cloud) algorithm, which uses satellite measurements in the visible, near-infrared and infrared part of the spectrum to retrieve cloud macrophysical properties, such as cloud amount and two independent cloud top heights, and cloud optical and microphysical properties, such as cloud top thermodynamic phase, cloud optical thickness and effective radius, which describes the particle size distribution.
Presented here is the FAME-C (Freie Universität Berlin AATSR and MERIS cloud) algorithm, which...
