This letter shows first results for the application of a recently developed semianalytical cloud retrieval algorithm for the determination of cloud top heights from space. The technique is based on the measurements of the top-of-atmosphere reflectance in the oxygen A-band. The depth of the band depends on the cloud top height and its geometrical thickness. The data obtained are compared to ground-based measurements of the cloud top height using a cloud-profiling radar.
