MODIS Climatology for IASCLIP
Last update (hover mouse on sector):
The map is showing all possible MODIS sectors into IASCLIP domain. Cloud Difference was calculated from monthly means, showing as a percentage which areas have more/less cloudiness in certain months (blue/red). For example, taking the Terra+Aqua (morning+afternoon) average for July and June, it was calculated the difference July-June. The blue areas show more cloudiness in July and red areas show more cloudiness in June. For more information about the estimation of cloudiness from MODIS imagery please refer to our Cloud Climatology Project.
