Abstract
During the conference on 'passive remote sensing of clouds and the atmosphere III' in 1995, a comparison of cloud amounts derived from two retrieval schemes, APOLLO and CHAPS, was presented. It showed good results over ocean but not so good ones over land surfaces. Reasons for the discrepancy have been suggested. Meanwhile, a modified version of the APOLLO scheme has been developed and compared to a one year data set of synop data. They agree quite well. This modified version of APOLLO is used for a new comparison with CHAPS. Using the same data set, the agreement is very god. The remaining difference is probably due to insufficient cloud detection with CHAPS.
