Short summary
The change in the state of sky from cloudy to cloudless (or vice versa) comprises an additional phase called transition zone with characteristics laying between those of aerosols and clouds. This study presents an approach for the quantification of the broadband longwave radiative effects of the cloud–aerosol transition zone at the top of the atmosphere during daytime over the ocean based on satellite observations and radiative transfer simulations.
