"In this depiction of global clouds, these satellite data are processed to discriminate clear (transparent) and cloudy areas. For cloudy areas, the brightness is approximated based upon the cloud top temperature relative to the surface temperature, as a ***proxy*** for the height of each cloud pixel. Due their location near the Earth's surface, low level clouds such as stratocumulus and stratus (fog) clouds may be poorly represented." http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showthreaded.php/Cat/0/Number/124...
