Short summary
This paper presents a method for determining global cloud cover by analyzing satellite data. Knowledge of cloud coverage is not only important for climate studies but also provides valuable information in the monitoring of atmospheric trace gases. The research presented here is embedded in an operational chain, which allows us to derive the cloud-cover information in near real time, i.e., only hours after sensing by the satellite.
