We have performed the inter-comparison study of cloud
property retrievals using algorithms initially developed for AATSR (ORAC, RAL-Oxford University), AVHRR and SEVIRI (CPP, KNMI), SCIAMACHY/GOME (SACURA, University of Bremen), and MERIS (ANNA, Free University of Berlin). The accuracy of retrievals of cloud optical thickness (COT), effective radius (ER) of droplets, and cloud top height (CTH) is discussed.
