Aquarius Validation Data System Overview and StatusAlgorithm Workshop March 21-22, 2007


Aquarius validation program

AVDS

  • Liaison with observers

  • Daily data acquisition

  • Quality control/editing

  • Uniform data format

Deliver surface calibration data to Aquarius Data Processing Segment (ADPS)

Task Leader:John Gunn

Aquarius Validation Program

TheAquarius Validation Data Segment (AVDS) will collect and process surface measurements for Aquarius data processing

In situ data filters

In situ data filters

  • Evaluate data for inclusion based on depth, QC flags

  • Duplicate data removed

  • At present, chooses daily data two weeks prior to real-time

  • Time and space selection limits specified (method TBD)

  • Formats data into text file for uploading by ADPS

390 km Orbit Spacing

Search Radius

Buoy Obs.

3 beams, 76 x 94, 84 x 120, 96 x 156 km instantaneous footprint ellipses across the 390 km wide swath.

Match-up Scheme

  • Match-up processing

  • One match-up file per buoy observation contains all the satellite data in the search radius

  • Subsequent processing to generate the optimal weighted average satellite observation per buoy

  • Global tabulations


Match up data processing

Match-up Data Processing

  • Run on ESR data server

  • Uses inputs from AVDS text file and subsequently generated satellite data file (HDF)

  • Process data from each beam and variable separately

  • Perform a weighted average of the pass data centered on the CPA

  • Weighting function shall be Gaussian with e-folding radius half of Aquarius beam width

  • Weighting function to be evaluated through subsequent analysis


Database management system

Database Management System

  • Structured similar to SeaBASS functionality

  • SQL based relational database

  • Search and retrieve capability for in situ, match-up data and originating data by time, geo-location, original platform characteristics and other TBD metadata.

  • Source information for original data may be specified rather than actual data

  • Web-based interface


Avds recent accomplishments

AVDS - Recent Accomplishments

  • Ongoing liaisons with DAC’s

  • Completion of AVDS/ADPS ICD

  • Transfer of real-time ARGO float data to ADPS

  • Recovery of matched up MODIS SST data to AVDS


Avds on going elements

AVDS - On-going Elements

  • Definition of key functional requirements (document in progress)

  • Draft AVDP Plan in preparation


Upcoming tasks

Upcoming Tasks

  • Definition and procurement of RDBMS software

  • Specification of AVDS dedicated data server (disk space requirements, etc.)

  • Web site development
