ocean color performance measures
Ocean Color Performance Measures
  • Task 1. Performance will be tracked by the continuous climate-quality data record of spectral water-leaving radiances at the MOBY site. MOBY has maintained a continuous, traceable, time series calibration record of LWN for the past seven years. Performance will be measured by the continuation of this cal/val record and by meeting the IPO objective to measure operational, ocean water-leaving radiance values with a threshold precision of 5% and a goal of 2% and reprocessed science quality data with a threshold of 2% and a goal of 1%. The metric for this subtask is the continued vicarious calibration of SeaWiFS and MODIS sensors and the ocean color sensors of the NPOESS and GOES-R eras.
    • Status:
  • Task 2. Separate metrics. MOCE cruise performance will be tracked by the number of validation match up points in the benchmark data set.
    • Status:
  • Subtask 3. The performance metric for this subtask will be the implementation of the MQABI quality assurance system by the end of FY05 and the continued validation of the forward data stream ocean color products with in situ match-ups.
    • Status:
  • Task 4. The ultimate MOCE project performance measurement will be to implement all our bio-optical product algorithms into operational production at NOAA with measurements meeting the IORD goals to measure operational chlorophyll concentrations with accuracy of 20% and operational inherent optical properties with an accuracy of 30%. Another performance measurement will be to produce science quality chlorophyll concentrations with an accuracy of 10% and science quality inherent optical properties with an accuracy of 20%.
    • Status:
  • Task 5. The performance metric for this subtask is the testing and utility assessment of the optical water mass classification capability by the end of FY06.
    • Status:
sea ice performance measures
Sea Ice Performance Measures
  • Tasks 1 and 3 - Sea Ice Product and Research Development and National Ice Center Polar Research. Products are evaluated using model, buoy data and observations using NOAA as well as other ships and aircraft resources of opportunity. Product evaluation and feedback by present and new users is sought after. The number of new and updated experimental products, transitioned products, and new users will be followed. In addition, where appropriate skill scores will be developed to determine product performance.

  • Task 2 - Sea Ice Altimetry Research. For altimetry Cal/Val, a decrease in the amplitude of error in estimated sea-ice freeboard from approximately 1.0 m to 15 cm by 2006 along CryoSat ground tracks and wavelength of freeboard error to 0.5 km. For altimetry climate - establish first year of sea-ice mass time series (monthly intervals) by end 2007.
