Simulated satellite images are an ideal tool to test and validate both satellite retrievals and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models. Here atmospheric profiles and cloud information from the COSMO-DE NWP model are used to simulate solar and thermal MSG/SEVIRI radiance observations. The simulated cloud scenes will be used for testing the MSG/SEVIRI cloud products retrieval algorithms by comparing the retrieved cloud properties from the simulated radiances to the one of the NWP clouds.
