Description

The EUSO-Balloon (CNES) campaign was conducted during the summer of 2014. EUSO-Balloon was launched the night of August 24. A completely isolated Infrared Camera was mounted on the side of the gondola carrying the EUSO-Balloon instrument. During part of the balloon flight a helicopter with UV flashers was flown below the balloon. We have retrieved cloud coverage and Cloud Top Height (CTH) from the IR camera images during the same time that the flashers were operated under the balloon. The optical depth during times when the atmosphere was not clear will be inferred by comparing the luminosity of the flashers with the signal recorded by EUSO-Balloon both, in clear and not clear conditions.
