Abstract

AbstractA brief review of observations of clouds using satellites highlights open issues and directions for future studies. The key one is improved treatment of the effects of small-scale spatial inhomogeneity in remote sensing data analyses and in the treatment of radiation in climate models, though studies and observations of the spectral dependence of cloud-radiation interactions are also limited. Significant progress in understanding the role of clouds in climate, especially regarding cloud-radiation budget relationships, is expected in the next several years because of an unprecedented suite of global and regional observation and analysis programs.
