Clouds are formed when water vapor in the atmosphere condenses. Dependent on factors such as the temperature, they may be formed of liquid water droplets, ice crystals, or a mixture of both.

Monitoring Earth's cloudiness from space is useful for many reasons. Two of the most important are for providing input to weather forecasts, and for climate monitoring purposes. Clouds reflect the Sun's visible light and can trap the Earth's emitted thermal radiation, so changing cover and properties of cloud can affect the Earth's energy balance.
