Abstract: Cirrus cloud detection accuracy of GOSAT/CAI and Landsat-8 is evaluated with a ground based Laser Radar: Lidar data and sky view camera data. Also, the evaluation results are confirmed with Calipso data together with a topographic representation of vertical profile of cloud structure. Furthermore, origin of cirrus clouds is estimated with forward trajectory analysis. The results show that GOSAT/CAI de4rived cirrus clouds is not accurately enough due to missing of cirrus cloud detection spectral channel while Landsat-8 derived cirrus cloud.
