Short summary
Upper tropospheric clouds cover about 30 % of the Earth and play a key role in the climate system by modulating the Earth's energy budget and heat transport. In this article, we study upper tropospheric cloud systems using cloud properties deduced from infrared sounders. Our analyses show that the size of the systems as well as the fraction of thin cirrus over the total anvil area increases with increasing convective depth.
