Short summary
A detection method for high-level cloud, such as ice clouds, is developed using the water vapor saturated channels (2  μm) of the solar reflected spectrum observed by the TANSO-FTS on board GOSAT. The clouds detected by this method are optically relatively thin (0.01 or less) and located at high altitudes. Approximately 85  % of the results from this method for clouds with a cloud-top altitude above 5  km agree with Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) cloud classification.
