Remote sensing of cloud properties and rainfall: three decades of satellite observations over Australia
Embargo Lift Date
MetadataShow full item record
A remote sensing study of global and Australian cloud cover was undertaken using a combination of High-resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS) and MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data for a 31-year period (1985 to 2015). Regional characterisations of potential rain clouds were investigated in the Southwest and Kimberley regions of Western Australia using satellite-derived cloud physical and micro-physical properties (cloud top pressure, cloud effective emissivity, cloud top temperature, cloud optical thickness and cloud effective radius).
