Diurnal variation of the cloud coverage photographed by the satellites over Indian Ocean and peninsular India.

P. E. Moray and Y. R. Nene

Since March 1970 a new satellite ITOS-1 came into operation and has been providing daily pictures of the cloud coverage during afternoon hours. These pictures have given us an opportunity to study the diurnal variations in the cloud coverage by comparing them with those of ESSA-8 taken during the forenoon. Some features of these variations are discussed in this paper.
