Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Remote sensing of clouds and atmosphere, with a long history of accomplishments, is at the heart of numerous studies aimed at understanding better a broad range of complex climate-related physical processes. This volume of SPIE proceedings includes 33 manuscripts in which the conference participants offer valuable highlights of the recent achievements in the development of advanced observational capabilities and improvements in remote sensing techniques. These proceedings cover the full range of the conference topics related to the remote sensing of atmosphere and clouds from surface and space, and the theoretical and experimental aspects of interaction of passive and active radiation with atmosphere and clouds.

Two invited speakers (Dr. David Winker, NASA Langley Research Center, United States, and Dr. Marc Mallet, Laboratoire d’Aérologie, CNRS, France) gave illuminating talks that bridged important observational and model components and generated many fruitful follow-up discussions. In addition to the distinguished senior participants, several early career scientists gave talks and shared new perspectives in their research fields.

The meeting was held in Toulouse, France, a beautiful and dynamic city with pleasant surroundings, and one of the main centers of the European aerospace industry. We are grateful to the SPIE Organizing Committee for providing the friendly environment and all participants for their valuable contributions, which were essential to the success of this meeting.
