The Daytime Cloud Optical and Microphysical Properties (DCOMP) Algorithm
Hall E (New Orleans Convention Center )
The Daytime Cloud Optical and Microphysical Properties (DCOMP) algorithm is designed to operate on several space-based sensors,such as AVHRR, MODIS, SEVIRI and the GOES series. DCOMP is part of The Pathfinder Atmospheres (PATMOS-x), which is recently to the NOAA National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). DCOMP will also be processed for the future GOES-R sensor. The relevant cloud products are cloud optical depth, effective particle size and water path. We show the most current developments with a focus on uncertainty estimates.
