GC33D:
Instrument Characterization and Calibration for Climate and Environmental Measurements II Posters


Session ID#: 8062

Session Description:
Earth-observing sensors provide measurements for a wide range of climate and environmental studies. It is critical that these sensors and associated data products remain calibrated in order to achieve synergy among coexisting sensors as well as temporally throughout generations of sensors. This session will promote communication between instrument scientists, metrologists, and data product users to report current state of instrument characterization uncertainties, and how these are propagated to climate and environmental data products. Ultimately, the topics here will better enable the community to advance physically-based retrievals and answer new science questions that use multiple sensors.

 

We are requesting the following topic areas:

-Results from sensor and data product intercomparisons

-Spatial and temporal scaling studies (ground/airborne/satellite)

-Traceability and uncertainty of data products

-Linking sensor performance to EDR and CDR uncertainties

-test site/validation site development used to calibrate/validate sensors and constellations
