Review of the Product Qualityand Validation phase of V1 Stream1 Production Centres Context Quality Assurance & Review Group review of the ScVR Validation outcomes, remarks
X.5 Dedicated ressources planned for Cal/Val Coordination of x.5 activity inside Production Units Provide diagnostics for scientific assessment in coordination with QuARG reviews
Context of the validation phase • Every PC has dedicated ressources to perform scientific assessment activities for: • Monitoring the V1 system performance during operations • Assessing the quality of V1 Product disseminated to users • The V1 Stream1 subsystem cal/val tools succeeded the VARR: the calibration phase proved already that: • Validation activity is in place in PC/PU • V1 Stream1 system offer an upgraded quality compared to V0 • In parallel, following the Stream2 V1 system agenda: • V1 S2 calibration phase has been performed • Based on similar system to V1, Reanalysis and Reprocessed Analysis have been performed and scientifically validated (strengthening validation synthesis for the operational system) • This has been reviewed with success at the PC Acceptance Stream2 V1.
Objective of the validation phase • Verifythatscientific validation procedures are running operationnalyat PC/PU level to asses the productquality • Verifythattheseprocedures are used, and the productqualityis as expected Ask for a Scientific Validation Report, based on the routine validation performedsince the 15th of December 2010

Flavour of V1 Product Quality assessment, from reporting • Every Production Centres fulfulling the scientific validation, some delays in delivery, but all project management procedures not already efficient: • GLO MFC: 3 PU, detailed and valuable validation • ARC MFC: detailed and valuable validation • MED MFC: detailed and valuable validation • SL TAC: detailed and valuable validation • OC TAC: detailed and valuable validation • SST TAC: ScVP expected. Detailed and valuable validation • SIW TAC: 7 doc. for sea ice. No doc for wind –> No delivery justified by Quickscat failure in 11/2009. Assessment for other products scheduled in V2 • INS TAC: no ScCR. But RTQC performed regularly. Particular attention also paid to reprocessed dataset
Expected outcome from calibration:accuracy levels per product (ex. SST TAC summary) Slide of the VARR Comparison to match-up database
ScCR results: MEDProducts example OC12 Slide of the VARR Location of the MED in situ-satellite matchups
Flavour of Product Quality assessment, from reporting: proposing new approach: OC TAC and MED MFC validating Chl-a MED 9 From MED ScVR
Flavour of the V1 Product Quality assessment: ARC MFC From ARC ScVR-REA ARC 5
Flavour of the V1 Product Quality assessment: GLO MFC In this section we display examples of CLASS1 routine consistency check of oceanic large scale signals and mesoscale structures. Several dates were chosen in order to illustrate the major good points and biases that have been diagnosed or monitored since the operational launch of V1. The plots presented here follow the CLASS1 metrics philosophy as they compare the model outputs and observations on a same grid. The MyOcean products themselves are interpolated on standard grids and in GODAE regions and constitute the “official” CLASS1 files for intercomparisons of models. We can see in Figure 1 a very good agreement between both Global and HR-Zoom systems and SLA observations. Nevertheless strong discrepancies are visible in the English Channel, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. This illustrates one of the current limitations of the system which produces a spicy bias in the North Sea and the Baltic. Spicy biases are also observed in the Celtic Sea GLO 4

Product Quality Assessment: V1 Stream1 Scientific Validation Review • Reporting has been performed, reporting mechanism had some minor deficiencies • The scientific validation procedures, and the corresponding reporting is: • Scientifically valuable • Reliable, and proved to be performed anytime (secured by many types of diagnostics) • Fair: good and bad aspects are addressed and reported • Consistent with plans and project management • Offering a continuity with system and products assessment (refer to calibration phase, to V0, compliant with MERSEA heritage) • Clear, providing useful synthesis for users • The scientific validation of V1 Stream1 is effective, and corresponding to QuARG expectation
Remarks, considerations, and ongoing work • This huge effort of validation has never been done elsewhere in the ocean community • Scientific validation of reanalysis products is promising: a strong effort is done to provide common validation strategies (Global reanalysis) that might be positively considered by the international community • The validation reporting is not fully organised for V1 and V2, but interest to maintain regular reporting is obvious, and will prepare MYO-2 operational validation
Link with users • Reporting is established, and could support regular information to users • Request from the User Forum in Stockholm, due to effort in reporting, actions can be commited for: • Estimated accuracy level (september 2011) • QUID (october 2011)
