An analysis of cloud overlap at a midlatitude atmospheric observation facility
Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions
An analysis of cloud overlap based on high temporal and vertical resolution retrievals of cloud condensate from a suite of ground instruments is performed at a mid-latitude atmospheric observation facility. Two facets of overlap are investigated: cloud fraction overlap, expressed in terms of a parameter "α" indicating the relative contributions of maximum and random overlap, and overlap of horizontal distributions of condensate, expressed in terms of the correlation coefficient of condensatedoi:10.5194/acpd-11-597-2011 fatcat:qzncaf4ds5fmflvoptypsn2wom
