Abstract
Cloud properties for individual ERBE scanner fields of view are obtained from simultaneous collocated imagery data. The cloud properties are used to assess the performance of the ERBE maximum likelihood estimate of cloud conditions which ultimately influences estimates of the radiative fluxes at the top of the atmosphere. During EOS the analysis of MODIS observations within the fields of view of the CERES instruments promises to yield in addition estimates of surface radiative fluxes as well as the vertical distribution of radiative heating within the atmosphere. 1.
