A method previously developed by the authors is employed to determine the cloud geometrical thickness from combined measurements of the cloud brightness temperature and the backscattered solar light intensity in the O2 A-band. The technique is applied to the analysis of four selected orbits of the European Remote Sensing 2 satellite using measurements performed by the Global Ozone Measurement Experiment spectrometer and the Along Track Scanning Radiometer. Cloud geometrical thicknesses were found to be in the range 0.5-7.5 km with most frequent values of 3 km for the cases studied.
