  4. Goals of SCILOV10 validation of operational SCIAMACHY Level 2 data version 5 (and higher) from 2002 to present (now 2012) using available correlative data from satellites and ground network SCIAMACHY solar irradiance and reflectance/cloudvalidation Inter-comparison of limb data products with GOMOS and MIPAS (O3 and NO2) SQWG support by validation of verification data sets multi-year comparison of scientific IUP SCIAMACHY retrievals to operational data products

  5. Goals of SCILOV10 (2) • documenting of validation results on a designated web page with particular emphasis on demonstration of improvements in operational data version upgrades • Operational validation (regular bi-annual updates) • Non-operational validation (~annual update) • Adhoc-validation (in response to SQWG needs) • establishing a validation strategy plan for nadir minor trace gases where suitable reference measurements are lacking  preparation for Sentinel 4, 5P, and 5

  6. Shiftoffocus in SCILOV 10 • ENVISAT missionended in April 2012 • more relevant: validationfor SQWG verificationand after dataversionupgrades & reprocessing • ACVE-3 meeting (March 2013) • Valdiationactivitiesfrom ENVISAT toSentinels • See „valdiationstrategyforminortracegases“ • SCIAMACHY as a climatedatarecord: O3 limb • SPARC Data Initiative (DI) • ESA Ozone cci • • SI2N (SPARC/IGACO-O3/IOC/NDCC) initiative: „Activity on Past changes in the Vertical Distribution of Ozone” •

  14. Documentationdeliverables • 10 scientificpapers • 1st draftsufficientforprojectclosure • 1 managementreport • documentationcollection on a dedicatedwebsite (either at ESA CALVAL or link to IUP) • plottingdatamadeavailableto ESA (not public) • CEOS EO calvalsite • onlyreferenceto Meris validationwith CEOS EO sitedata

  15. IssuesandRecommendations • Solar irradiance: • Still someissueswith NIR channels in V8 (quick icing a problem, 850 nm)  needsfurtherevaluation • Improvingdegradation (opticalthroughputmodel) byallowingfornatural SSI variability (EU Solid, BMBF ROMIC) • Correctionsfrompre-flightconditionis still not complete (WLS correction • UV/NIR reflectance • Trace back SCIAMACHY validationto MERIS validationusingCEOS EO Calvalsites • LOS dependence • UV reflectance (soft calibration) • LOS dependence • Clouds • CTP- CTH conversion (AATSR): standardatmospherevs ECMWF • Surface: snow, coastalline, aerosol • Further improvements in algorithms (ice/waterclouds, improved OCRA thresholds) • Total ozone • GODFIT betterthan SGP5 • NO2 total columns • LOS dependence • Groundvalidation

  16. IssuesandRecommendations • Limb ozone • ESA/DLR algorithm needs to add Hartley/Huggins band (IUP algorithm needs to add Huggins band) • Drop after 2011 • Cloud filtering • Bump in differences at 30 km (Huggins wavelengths) • Limb NO2 • Too strong regularization in ESS/DLR (L-curve) • Large polar bias between ESA and IUP (nut NO2 is very low in polar night, IUP shows seasonality) • Optimization of photochemical correction • Limb BrO • Use variable BrO climatology in ESA/DLR retrievals • Improve SNR by integrating 4 azimuth angles before retrieval • Improve regularisation (see NO2)

  17. IssuesandRecommendations • Minor trace gas validationstrategy (towards S5P) • Good and adaptive spatial (temporal) coverage (specific events) • lightweight and mobile instrumentation, • continuous measurements (reference) • Establishment of a reference/standard • Standardisation procedures/tools/data format/apriori/input data, e.g. albedo, aerosol, climatologies, … • data assimilation • A combination of long-term observations and dedicated campaigns • “mobile” and flexible reference network (e.g. commercial platforms) “crowd” validation (high number instruments more important than few very accurate instruments but both needed) • Capacity building • Need forsurfaceproberties: NO2, albedo

  18. Future activities • Validation of SCIA L1-V8 (V9) and L2-V6 (V7) (collaborationwith SQWG) • Whattocover? Limited resources, verificationsupport, links toothervaldiationactivities (SCIAVALIG), carry overto S5P • Formation ofan airqualityvalidationnetworkwithinstrumentationsfrom simple (many, movable) tosophisticated (supersites, stationary) forminortrace gas validation • Dedicatedmeasurementsites, mobile instrumentations, commercialpiggybacks, dedicatedcampaigns, standardisationbyintercomparisoncampaigns, tools, auxiliaryinput,… • PreparationforSentinel
