Short summary
This paper presents the impact of cirrus cloud heterogeneities and 3-D effects on TOA solar reflectances from 50 m to 10 km spatial resolutions. We have shown that these effects are strongly dependent on spatial resolution as well as solar and viewing geometries and that it is difficult to find an optimal spatial resolution minimizing these various effects.
