Short summary
The widely used cloud detection and retrieval scheme APOLLO (AVHRR Processing Over cLouds, Land and Ocean) has been used as the physical basis for a probabilistic formulation of the cloud detection and has been expanded by retrieval of additional cloud variables, like cloud effective radius. The paper introduces the metodology of the APOLLO_NextGeneration (APOLLO_NG) scheme as well as first applications to AVHRR and a short comparison of cloud detection results with the traditional APOLLO.
