This article discusses how pyrgeometers, pyranometers, and some basic weather parameters can be used to evaluate cloud base height, cloud base temperature, and cloud coverage at the local scale throughout the year. Ground-based laser beam ceilometers are used at Automated Surface Observing Systems (ASOS) in major airports in the United States to measure cloud base height and report sky conditions hourly or at shorter intervals. These are fixed-type laser ceilometers, with transmitters and receivers pointing straight up at the cloud … Continue reading “A Comparative Study between Laser Beam Ceilometer and Algorithm for Continuous Evaluation of Cloud Base Height, Temperature, and Cloud Coverage in Logan City, USA”
