Abstract

Climatic representativity presumes at least a few decades of observation and data processing under constant conditions, which is generally not the case in satellite remote sensing. A method based on local macrosynoptic typization is therefore introduced for any short sample, in which the actual frequency distribution of the macrotypes might be quite different from their climatic average. The method is illustrated by using cloud-amount ("relative brightness") and relative global radiation series, derived from METEOSAT-4 information.
