Validation Contribution

Preliminary comparison of TROPOMI/S5p RPRO CLOUD CAL cloud top height and CRB cloud height against ground-based CLOUDNET data.
From the Sentinel-5p TROPOMI L2_CLOUD RPRO 1.0.0 data, (November 2017 - begin May 2018), the ROCINN-CAL cloud top height and ROCINN-CRB cloud height were compared with the ground-based cloud target classification measurements from the CLOUDNET database (, obtained within the same time period. Clear correlations are established. The CAL cloud top height is lower than the CLOUDNET height by ~0.5-1 km and the CRB cloud height is lower than the CLOUDNET mid-height by 0.3-0.5 km.
