Observed cloud morphology and inferred microphysics over the South Pacific from MISR and MODIS measurements of shortwave reflectivity

AIP Conference Proceedings (2017)

A rapid study of boundary layer clouds over the Southern Ocean compared to their Northern Hemisphere counterparts reveals statistical differences in the probability of glaciation at the same cloud-top temperature, and in the respective plane parallel albedo biases.

The preliminary study indicates that a more comprehensive study of these features is merited, with a view to improving the cloud parameterizations currently used in climate models.
