Calculating the Monthly Frequency for Cloud Cover in Baghdad Station




Cloud cover, Frequency, Observe, Classification, Baghdad


The science developed more there for depending on cloud cover become more through knowing the type of cloud and shape and height with climate changing followed that observing station start built and also systems able to observe cloud cover from surface in addition from space by using satellite. The aim of this search Calculating the monthly frequency for cloud cover in Baghdad station. Data about total cloud taken for three levels (high, middle, and low) clouds cover Baghdad city for rainy season from Uruapan medium Rang for casting (ECMWF) for year 2015 in Baghdad station. Calculating the monthly frequencies of the cloud cover. The highest frequency of high, medium, low and total clouds at 0octa in all months. Medium cloud cover lowest values or recurrence at (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) octa.
