Hughes, N.A., and A. Henderson-Sellers, 1983: A preliminary global oceanic cloud climatology from satellite albedo observations. J. Geophys. Res., 88, no. C2, 1475-1483, doi:10.1029/JC088iC02p01475.

A pilot study has lead to the establishment of a preliminary predictive relationship for cloud amount as a function of satellite observed system albedo. The United States Air Force 3D-nephanalysis cloud archive is used as the source of cloud data and is compared with monthly mean system albedo values calculated by NOAA/NESS from the NOAA satellite scanning radiometer data at a resolution of 2.5° by 2.5°. The predictive relationship is applied to ocean areas to produce new global oceanic cloud climatologies.
