Y. R. Nene and M. N. Gokhale

Satellite pictures of clouds appearing over the sung light provide a means of estimating the height of cloud tops over ocean areas, the shadows cast by the convective clouds are often clearly seen over the glint |area and can be used for the estimation of the heights of the tops of the associated clouds.
