Satellite-based retrievals of cloud and radiation properties are available in this value-added product provided by Bill Smith’s group at NASA/Langley using the VISST (Visible Infrared Solar-Infrared Split Window Technique) algorithm. These datastreams are both pixel-level (4-km) retrievals and averages on a 0.3 or 0.5 degree latitude-longitude grid and replace earlier satellite-based retrievals on the Layered Bispectral Threshold Method (LBTM).
