Climatological characteristics of cloud cover - means, variances, structure functions - previously computed for five years are compared with the results of a new test cloud cover data set of one year period. The effects on the cloud field of the Alps, the Carpathian basin and the land-ocean interface, further the seasonal changes of the general circulation are well reflected. The new test data set is based upon digitized data of one morning as well as one afternoon picture per day. Therefore some results are also obtained of the cloud cover variations during the day. © 1985.
