The POLDER radiometer was on board the ADEOS satellite from August 1996 to June 1997. This instrument measures radiances in eight narrow spectral bands of the visible and near infrared spectrum. Two of them are centered on the 02 A-band in order to infer cloud pressure. By assuming the atmosphere behaves as a pure absorbing medium overlying a perfect reflector, an "apparent" pressure Papp is derived from POLDER data. For validation purposes, Papp is first compared to the sea-surface pressure Psdoi:10.1029/98gl02324 fatcat:vuo47yekh5aalaykqmfxfes22i
