Abstract

The European Center for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) cloud cover is compared with that derived by three active instruments located at Chilbolton, England, for a three-month period. This comparison demonstrates the potential of combined ground-based active instruments for validating model cloud cover. The very different scattering behaviors of radar and lidar are shown to complement each other very well.
