Short summary
Three-dimensional (3-D) radiative transfer effects are a major source of retrieval errors in satellite-based optical remote sensing of clouds. Multi-pixel, multispectral approaches based on deep learning are proposed for retrieval of cloud optical thickness and droplet effective radius. A feasibility test shows that proposed retrieval methods are effective to obtain accurate cloud properties. Use of the convolutional neural network is effective to reduce 3-D radiative transfer effects.
