-derived surface solar radiation were considered. Used here are monthly mean data with a horizontal resolution of 0.05° × 0.05°. Surface downwelling shortwave radiation from the Surface Solar Radiation Dataset–Heliosat (SARAH; Müller et al. 2015 ) was derived from the Meteosat Visible and Infrared Imager (MVIRI) and SEVIRI instruments on-board geostationary Meteosats 4–9 covering the period 1983–2008. The derivation is based on a retrieval using the Heliosat approach and an efficient clear-sky surface solar

meningitis prediction, are used to illustrate the methods. The next chapter of The Forecasters’ Handbook introduces the reader to all kinds of satellite sensors (chapter 9), which are an inevitable and growing source of information in a ground and upper-air data-sparse region. The lead author also led the COMET online tropical meteorology textbook ( www.meted.ucar.edu ) development, and this is reflected in a scholarly review on the use of more classical (e.g., visible, infrared, and water vapor images

Cloud and Land Surface Interaction Campaign (CLASIC) conducted over the SGP ( Fig. 1 ) during 7–30 June 2007 by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program of the U.S. Department of Energy. The primary goal of CLASIC was “to improve understanding of the physics of the early stages of cumulus cloud convection as it relates to land surface conditions, and to translate this new understanding into improved representations in GCMs and regional climate models” ( Miller et al. 2007a , p. 2
