The nature of the global cloud trends and their interactions with the Earth's climate were evaluated with respect to large scale dynamics. The Cloud Archive User Service (CLAUS) brightness temperature dataset was used to provide independent verification of the cloud amount trend. Precipitation data was also obtained from two different sources: the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) and the Climate Prediction Center Merged Analysis of Precipitation (CMAP). Some robust trends were observed at the centers of action located in the tropical Pacific Ocean near the dateline and the positive trend located over Indonesia.
