Summary/Recommendations • NPROVS provides routine validation against conventional sondes • includes against independent microwave (MiRS) and legacy • first guess, microwave only, NWP • clouds, diurnal, terrain, regional … • deep dive when combined with orbital • Results (preliminary) for CrIMMS support Beta designation • Need routine access to NGAS (and NUCAPS) … and MiRS • Coordination with other cal/val team activities • special NPP validation using synchronized sondes at ARM (Tobin) … GRUAN
