    Here, the panel identifies, from the viewpoint of weather science and applications, the current capabilities and projected requirements for fine-temporal-resolution all-weather measurement (in both clear and cloudy regions) of temperature and humidity profiles.

[Roger G Barry; Jeffrey R Key; James Andrew Maslanik; Robert G Crane; University of Colorado Boulder. Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences,; University of Colorado Boulder.

Department of Geography,; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration,. The detection of clouds in satellite imagery has a number of important applications in weather and climate studies. between reflected energy from clouds and surrounding (less reflective) scenes can be used to determine the extent of cloud cover over a region.

micrometer channel difference is also used at night in polar regions. A Cited by: What type of satellite is used to monitor clouds cover and air climatology 'Cloud cover determination in polar regions from satellite imagery' -- subject(s): Data retrieval, Polar regions.

Satellite imagery and remote sensing data have been widely used in the last decades to identify land cover and land use types (Shamal & Weatherhead, ). Satellites are generally able to provide useful spatial and temporal information from agricultural land in a low-cost, quick, and easy way.

@article{osti_, title = {Determination of cloud amount and level from radiosonde soundings}, author = {Chernykh, I.V. and Eskridge, R.E.}, abstractNote = {A method developed in the former Soviet Union for predicting cloud amounts is supplemented with a new method of determining the base and tops of the clouds.

Criteria for predicting a cloud layer are 0. For example, the variation of cloud amounts over polar ice sheets, sea ice, and ocean surfaces can have important effects on planetary albedo gradients and on surface energy exchanges (Barry et al.,; Shine and Crane, ).

Cloud cover exerts a major influence over the amount of solar and longwave radiation reaching the surface, and is Cited by: 2. This model was developed using data from polar-orbiting satellites and created relationships between cloud transmittance and planetary albedo using collocated surface and satellite measurements.

Möser and Raschke () created a model based on the premise that GHI is related to fractional cloud cover and used it to estimate solar radiation.

ICESat (Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite) ICESat is a NASA/GSFC mission within the ESE (Earth Science Enterprise) program.

The prime objective is to monitor the mass balance of the polar ice sheets and their contributions to global sea level change. A weather map displays various meteorological features across a particular area at a particular point in time and has various symbols which all have specific meanings.

Such maps have been in use since the midth century and are used for research and weather forecasting purposes. Maps using isotherms show temperature gradients, which can help locate weather fronts.

Whitmeyer Lieutenant Commander, United. TIROS successfully demonstrated the ability to provide images of the Earth’s cloud cover over remote areas of the planet on a vast scale in a timely manner from an Earth-orbiting spacecraft.

Today the TIROS-N/NOAA (A-D) polar orbital satellites circle the Earth twice a day at an altitude of approximately by:   There is an alternative.

For decades, the USGS evaluated Landsat satellite imagery by estimating the cloud cover as an aid to users. That is, giving the users some assurance as to how much if any of the image was cloud free. All that data exists in archives and could be analyzed to see if it agrees with what NASA has published.

[Oral Presentation], International Glaciological Society conference on Remote Sensing for Polar Regions, Washington D.C., USA, JUN - DEC Admittedly, the premature failure of the Defense Department’s DMSP F17 and F19 satellites has definitely reduced the number of times a day we can measure the polar regions.

Artist rendering of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellite, carrying the SSMIS instrument (upper-left) since July Decreasing sea ice and snow cover are reducing the surface albedo and changing the Arctic surface energy balance.

How these surface albedo changes influence the planetary albedo is a more complex question, though, that depends critically on the modulating effects of the intervening atmosphere.

To answer this question, we partition the observed top of atmosphere Cited by: 2. “The spatial and temporal effect of cloud cover on the acquisition of high quality Landsat imagery in the European Arctic sector.” Remote Sensing of Environment – Marshall, J.

1 Ice-albedo feedback effect 1, 2 associated with the high albedo of snow and ice which cover a large fraction of the region has been postulated as one of the key reasons for the amplification of the by:   Similarly, if a satellite failed to detect a cloud and the model analysis shows a saturated environment, the model water vapor content is reduced.

Following this theme, Yucel et al. (, ) proposed a more complex technique to adjust model cloud (and humidity) variables toward the satellite observed cloud properties using a four-step Cited by:
