WUCD effects on SSTs and BTs


SQUAM: VIIRS SST – OSTIA (WUCD 19 Mar 2013)

14 Mar 2013 - “Regular Day”

19 Mar 2013 - “WUCD Day”

ΔSST ~+0.25K

SQUAM: Daily Global Stats of VIIRS SST - OSTIA

2012/2/10

2012/5/22-25

2013/3/18-20

2012/12/17-19

2012/9/10-12

Initial large spike in global mean biases in Feb 2012. After code fixes, SST spikes reduced to ~0.2-0.3K.

NB: These are daily global statistics. Local spikes are likely larger (no special analysis done).

Large spike in global Std Dev Feb 2012. After code fixes, SST spikes not seen.

MICROS: VIIRS SST - Reynolds

SQUAM observations are consistent with MICROS (where SST is also monitored but only wrt Reynolds): Effect of WUCD on global SST mean biases is ~0.2-0.3K.

NB: These are again daily global statistics. Local spikes may be larger (but no special analysis was done).

However, major objective of MICROS is to monitor BTs. Effect of WUCD on global BT mean biases is ~0.1K.

These are again daily global statistics. Local spikes may be larger (but no special analysis was done).

Observations
Observations

  • WUCD appears to continue affecting global BT mean biases with an amplitude of ~0.1K

  • In SST, these artifacts are amplified, due to the nature of SST regression equation, to 0.2-0.3K

  • These are global daily statistics. Local effects maybe larger but separate analysis is needed
