Presentation Transcript

  1. Craig Donlon and Ian Robinson, ESA AO9081 First presented at the ENVISAT validation Workshop, ESA/ESRIN, Italy, December, 2002.

  2. Outline • Review of validation activities • Presentation of results • Particular concerns • Future validation work into 2003 and beyond • Summary

  3. Validation Activities • Based on UoL project RP16 060 “AATSR Validation Program” Work package VAL600 (Issue 4, 14/9/01):Key activities are: • Negotiate the deployment of in situ instruments with shipping companies. • Prepare and deploy ISAR radiometers during the post-AATSR SODAP commissioning phase of Envisat. • Collect, process and archive in situ measurements measurements. • Order and analyse AATSR data. • Analyse in situ/satellite SSST co-locations. • Submit processed data to the NILU database. • Provide validation reports to the VS.

Donlon (9081) & I. Robinson (9082) CoPIs: M. Reynolds (BNL) & T Nightingale (RAL) Project Manager: G. Fisher

  5. In situ data collection • Data/instrumentation: • ISAR radiometer: SSTskin • SSTdepth sensors: SSTdepth • UK Met Office Ship reports for each ship • 2 “operational” activities in the Bay of Biscay/E. Channel area: • M/V Val de Loire • May 15th - June 26th 2002 • M/V Pride of Bilbao and EU FerryBox project • August 16th 2002 - Present

  6. ISAR radiometer Scandrum View aperture • An autonomous in situ IR radiometer: • Accuracy Specification +/-0.1K rms • Longevity: 3 months at sea unattended • Uses a sensitive rain gauge • Triggers a shutter that seals the system • Dedicated real time data log system

  7. ISAR Installation: Val de Loire ISAR5C Mount bracket shown in place on the bridge wing. ISAR-5C radiometer and ScTi MiniORG rain sensor.

  8. Other Instruments and Data… SBE48 internal hull SST sensor @ 5m depth. Kipp&Zonen CM11 pyranometer Gill Wind-master 3 axis sonic anemometer (u,v,z @ 1 sec) YSI thermistor located in sea chest (x2) @ 5m ISAR-5C also provides: • Position • cmg & smg • Roll/pitch/heave • Precipitation (research) • Master (gps) date/time

  9. ISAR installation: Pride of Bilbao New ISAR mount bracket New Cable run (50m !!) New Rain Gauge mount bracket

  10. SOC FerryBox Experiment • Real-time underway data via Satellite link from • Thermosalinograph and Flourimeter • ISAR will be interfaced to the system in January 2003

  11. AATSR/ATSR-2 Validation indicator • Derived using ISAR sky Brightness Temperatures (BTsky): • Good: clear sky (BTsky <200 K) • Fair: broken cloud (200 K < BTsky < 260 K) • No chance: Cloudy sky (BTsky > 260 K) • local overpass time periods of 09:30–11:30 and 21:30-23:30. • To assess the effort/success: • EffortIndex=N.Val.chances/N.days.Obs

  12. Val de Loire Operations Summary of Potential validation data points: Good: 37(Effort index=1.028) Fair: 42(Effort Index=1.16) None: 29(Effort Index=0.806) May 15th - June 26th 2002

  13. Pride of Bilbao Operations 22-26 October 2002 • No chance: Cloudy sky (BTsky > 260 K) • Effort Index=NaN

  14. AATSR/ATSR-2 & RA-2 data • Started to receive data 4 weeks ago… • No time to process the data yet • No data prior to September 2002 • Work in progress…

  15. Particular concerns • Piloting a new system that will mature as we continue through 2003 • Validation is not a 6 month only experiment • test instrument performance • atmospheric correction strategies • geophysical data accuracy • It is an important (but often overlooked) satellite mission component; an incomplete validation program: • it becomes impossible to demonstrate any independent confidence limits for the geophysical satellite data products. • In the case of satellite SST data sets having accuracies better than 0.3 K the quality of the in situ measurement becomes a critical factor • NILU... • Need an on-going funded validation program for AATSR • Staff shortage… • Operations and equipment calibration/maintenance funding

  16. The Future • Will continue operations on the M/V Pride of Bilbao until funding runs out (mid 2003). • Collaboration with University of Miami under the NOPP • ISAR aboard the Falstaff • Inter-comparisons with other radiometers • More ISAR radiometers are being solicited (UK, India, Japan, USA) • Commercialization in July 2003 • Planned Experiment in June 2003 Aqua-Alta Tower N. Adriatic. • Scatterometers • Visible radiometers • IR radiometers • Effect of sea state on sky corrections
