Cloud scenes observed by the Advanced Visible and Near-Infrared Radiometer on board the Japanese polar platform Advanced Earth Observing Satellite have been analysed to check the validity of power laws extending from the length scale of a few metres to several kilometers. The kind of scaling law we have investigated pertains to cloud morphology and may have important implications for the design of the scan geometry of new satellite-borne infrared sensors aimed at improving the density of clear soundings in frontal systems.
