Short summary
This study proposed a new cloud retrieval method based on the particle filter (PF). The PF cloud retrieval method is compared with the Multivariate and Minimum Residual (MMR) method that was previously established and verified. Cloud retrieval experiments involving a variety of cloudy types are conducted with the PF and MMR methods with measurements of Infrared radiances on multi-sensors onboard both GOES and MODIS, respectively.
