All tutorials have been created within the Copernicus Climate Change Project “C3S_312b_Lot1”.
This tutorial presents the Essential Climate Variable “Cloud Properties” and related datasets. It also explains the role of clouds in the Earth´s climate system, the cloud physical properties and how clouds are estimated from satellite observations. Related datasets are the CM SAF Cloud, Albedo and Radiation from the AVHRR data record, Edition 2 (CLARA-A2) as well as the ESA Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSRv3 dataset.

In this tutorial, we present the Essential Climate Variable “Water Vapour” at the upper atmospheric level. It mentions the three types of water vapour products: Upper Tropospheric Humidity (UTH), Tropospheric Humidity Profiles and Total Column Water Vapour. Related datasets are the CM SAF Microwave Upper Tropospheric Humidity Data Record – Edition 1 and the C3S Total Column Water Vapour Global Vapour from 2002 to 2012 dataset.
