Two classes of cloud-cleared radiances retrieval approaches developed so far comprise the synergistic use of 1) collocated infrared and microwave measurements, and 2) collocated infrared imaging and sounding measurements that is discussed in detail in the companion paper entitle "Evaluation of Cloud-Cleared Radiances for Numerical Weather Prediction and Cloud Contaminated Sounding Applications" [1]. In that paper AIRS/AMSU and AIRS/MODIS cloud-cleared algorithms are discussed and their performance evaluated. The focus of this paper is to present additional examples and statistics for not only cloud-cleared radiances but also cloud-cleared retrieval of temperature and water vapor.
