Short summary
We present multi-year cloud climatologies from the advanced IR sounders AIRS and IASI. These data are particularly sensitive to cirrus. Cloud emissivity allows to distinguish between high opaque, thick cirrus and thin cirrus. By comparing tropical geographical change patterns of these cloud types with respect to changing tropical mean surface temperature, it is demonstrated that their response to climate change may be different, with potential consequences on the atmospheric circulation.
