Row anomaly row 53 uv2 vis

Row anomaly row 53 (UV2, VIS)

  • In row 53 in UV2 and VIS in level-1b data (0-based).

  • Suppresses signals by 20-30% in UV2 and VIS over complete illuminated orbit.

  • At the north pole the signal decrease changes into signal increase (sun light reflection).

  • Not visible in UV1.

  • Not visible in sun or WLS measurements.

  • First appeared around 25-27 June 2007.

  • Seems to have optical origin rather than electronical.

  • Can be seen in level-0, level-1b and level-2 data.

Row anomaly May 2008

  • Rows 18-21 in UV1, 38-41 in UV2 and VIS in level-1b data (0-based).

  • First appears on 11 May 2008 and further increases on 16 May 2008.

  • In UV2 and VIS similar as row 53 anomaly, but:

    • new anomaly appears only after nTimes=1140 on northern hemisphere (14 minutes prior to sun_elev_angle=0 degrees).

  • New anomaly shows strong sun light reflection in UV1, UV2, VIS, only after nTimes=1140, almost 10x more signal than radiance in UV1.

  • Also observed in NO2, SO2, cloud products.


Conclusions 1

Conclusions (1)

  • After September 2007 anomaly now a more severe May 2008 anomaly.

  • The May 2008 anomaly affects several (4) binned rows in all channels.

  • Both anomalies seem to be caused by some kind of optical blockage. This blockage also reflects sun light into the nadir port.

  • It can not be excluded that more row anomalies appear in the future.

  • It is worrying that the cause for the onset of the row anomalies is not at all understood.

    • Impact of EOS-Aura rephasing / maneuvers (e.g. DMU) unknown.


Conclusions 2

Conclusions (2)

  • The May 2008 anomaly may be correctable in UV2 and VIS, but ......

    • The row anomaly is highly variable in time within one orbit as well as long-term (between orbits).

    • UV1 is saturated in the affected rows, which is can not be corrected.

    • The correction requires an additive correction (reflected sun light) as well as a multiplicative correction (optical blockage), both of which are highly variable within an orbit as well as long-term, and row dependent.

    • Corrected rows in UV2 and VIS will not be of the same quality as before the blockage.

    • A 0-1b data processor change is required.

    • A Time-Dependent OPF (TDOPF) change is required.

    • Different corrections may be required for forward processing and for reprocessing.

    • It will take considerable time before a potential correction algorithm can be implemented and used.
