1983, 1984, and 1985, have been constructed from ISCCP B2 Meteosat data.
Average and standard deviation images from thermal infrared and water
vapor channels are studied. In the thermal infrared, differences between
the three years appear principally in the mean structure of the ITCZ,
North-South extend, northward boundary, longitudinal variations of the
convection. In the water vapor channel, well defined ``dry'' areas
appear, showing the location and extent of subsidence regions on a large
scale. These locations and extents also vary from year to year.

  abstract = {{A comparison has been undertaken between surface-observed total low- and
high-cloud amount and retrievals from METEOSAT radiance data made using
the cluster technique of Desbois et al. (1982). The aim of the study was
to establish whether surface-observed cloud information could be
usefully exploited to benefit satellite-based cloud retrievals.
Observations from 124 surface stations at 1200 UT for the 20-day period
from July 22 to August 10, 1983, were compared with retrievals made from
METEOSAT radiances measured at 1130 UT. The comparisons for total and
low-cloud amount are made for France and southern Britain. The
high-cloud amount comparison was limited to 34 stations in southern
Britain. The location and time period were selected to coincide with one
of the regions designated for special study in the International
Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) (Schiffer, 1982). For total
cloud amount, 29\% of the retrievals were fully in agreement with the
surface observations and 64\% of differences were within {\plusmn}1 okta
({\plusmn}1 eighth of sky cover). In the case of layer cloud amounts, 64\%
of the low-cloud amount differences and 50\% of the high-cloud amount
differences were within {\plusmn}1 okta, although many of these successes
(71\% in the low-cloud amount) were for cases of totally clear or totally
cloudy skies. Surface observations, which offer the only source of
accurate low-cloud amount evaluation in any multilayered situation, were
found to identify thin cirrus which was not detected by the satellite
retrieval and to detect small gaps in cloud decks and small clouds
missed by the satellite retrieval. In addition, cloud retrievals in
coastal locations seemed to be more successfully accomplished by surface
observers than by the satellite retrieval algorithm used here, which
does not take into account land-sea partition.

that these observations are accurate enough to provide information on
the long term behavior of the Galilean satellites.

are generally good: for total cloud amount 30\% of retrievals were fully

anticipated, the surface observations offered additional information oin
low cloud cover in multi-layer situations. Surface observers were also
