Statistics on low cloud occurrence per month along the South-Western African coast at 7:00 and 14:00 UTC, 2004 to 2009, supplement to: Cermak, Jan (2012): Low clouds and fog along the south-western African coast – satellite-based retrieval and spatial patterns. Atmospheric Research, 116, 15-21

Jan Cermak
The spatial and temporal patterns of fog and low clouds along the South-Western African coast are characterized based on an evaluation of Meteosat SEVIRI satellite data. A technique for the detection of fog/low clouds in the region is introduced, and validated using 1 year of CALIOP cloud lidar products, showing reliable performance. The frequency of fog and low cloud in the study area is analyzed by systematic application of the technique to all available Meteosat...
