The prior probabilities of cloud could
Table 15 shows a similar summary table for twilight conditions. As with daytime cases, the baseline classifier has the highest clear-sky PPC (96.7%) but also the highest cloud and ice MC values (5.5% and 14.2% respectively). Introducing a third class along with the daytime textural modification significantly reduces the cloud and ice MC values to close to zero but also reduces the clear-sky PPC to 59.7%. In this UC 112 case the current ARC cloud screening outperforms the daytime textural modification with a clear-sky PPC of 78.7% (compared with 62.1%) and a adenosine diphosphate (ADP) cloud and ice MC of 0.0%.
