MODIS_CR_Equal_Angle_3h

The MODIS Collection 6.1 Equal-Angle Three-Hourly Cloud Regime product. This product is a discrete classification of cloud fields at the mesoscale as observed by the MODIS sensors aboard the Terra and Aqua satellites. Derived by applying the k-means clustering algorithm to joint-histograms of cloud top pressure and cloud optical thickness, the cloud regimes represent different atmospheric systems based on their cloud signatures.
