Kokhanovsky, AA, Rozanov, VV, Nauss, T, Reudenbach, C, Daniel, JS, Miller, HL, Burrows, JP (2006). The semianalytical cloud retrieval algorithm for SCIAMACHY - I. The validation. ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS, 6, 1905-1911.

A recently developed cloud retrieval algorithm for the SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY ( SCIAMACHY) is briefly presented and validated using independent and well tested cloud retrieval techniques based on the look-up-table approach for MODeration resolutIon Spectrometer ( MODIS) data. The results of the cloud top height retrievals using measurements in the oxygen A-band by an airborne crossed Czerny-Turner spectrograph and the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) instrument are compared with those obtained from airborne dual photography and retrievals using data from Along Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR-2), respectively.
