Scientific map of cloud fraction across the world
Cloud feedback has been the largest source of uncertainty in estimating global mean surface temperature increase with global warming for more than twenty years. Water vapour is a greenhouse gas which acts as an insulator of the earth to the direct heat and cold from space, and helps to keep […]

Role of CCI datasets for cloud modelling

Météo France has extended the confrontation of models with CCI Sea Level data over the Mediterranean area to include the analysis of three coupled regional simulations (CNRM-RCSM, LMDZ-MED, MORCE-MED) and one Mediterranean Sea simulation (MED12) from the Med-Cordex multi-model ensemble. CCI data enables researchers to better assess model performance in […]
