Arking, A., 1964: Latitudinal distribution of cloud cover from Tiros III photographs. Science, 143, no. 3606, 569-572, doi:10.1126/science.143.3606.569.

Television pictures from the Tiros III satellite have been analyzed on a computer to give the latitudinal distribution of cloud cover during the summer of 1961. The results, which will be useful in studying the heat balance of the atmosphere and in the determination of vertical motion, show good agreement with the long-term average cloudiness derived from data accumulated during 50 years of ground observations.
