A021:
Calibration and validation of passive satellite earth observation systems





Session ID#: 22841

Session Description:
Satellite observations from passive microwave, infrared and solar reflective instruments play a very important role in weather forecast and climate assessments. However, these observations are subject to errors and uncertainties such as sensor degradation, calibration drift and geolocation error. This session supports all activities related to calibration, validation, bias correction, inter-calibration, and geolocation correction of the observations from passive microwave, infrared and visible instruments. This session also supports similar activities that are normally used to develop climate (environmental) data records from satellite observations.
