2) Scenarios and end-to-end tests

  • Basic scenarios: April scenarios from Butz et al., 2010
  • Above: reference water vapour and albedo
  • Comparison to reference:
  • Right: Histogram for representation errors of the corrected water vapour

2 gain matrix
2) Gain matrix

Gain matrix for oxygen corrected water vapour columns delivered

Gain for US standard water vapour, albedo=0.02, SZA=0° should be representative/ larger than most scenarios

3 wavelength range
3) Wavelength range
  • Used wavelength range for basic scenarios: 686-702nm, planned 688-700nm
  • All scenarios converged for 688-700nm, mean difference to reference larger than for basic scenarios, both wavelength ranges work
  • Larger ones (e.g. 788-705nm) tested on small data sets are rather worse.

4) Vertical sensitivity

Basic scenarios compared with scenarios, where the H2O is doubled in the lowest altitude

4783 scenarios, converged: 4696, filtered: 4014

Large errors caused by strong change of profile shape

5) Retrieval over ocean

  • Interpolated scenarios over ocean, right unfiltered, left filtered data.
  • Albedo 0.01 for most, fixed aerosol phase function and ratio between scattering (85%) and absorbing (15%) aerosols, few scenarios pass filter (9%)
  • Differences larger than expected from retrieval of SCIAMACHY measurements and scenarios based on them (bottom)

slide13

6.1) Overview over instrumental errors

  • Histogram for instrumental errors (without RSRA and intra-band co-registration)
  • Different realisations of ISRF asymmetry shown
  • Noise, ISRF width, ARA additive and multiplicative calculated from comparison to basic scenarios
  • Others calculated with the gain of basic scenarios
  • Estimated intra-band co-registration random error for different directions. O2 band disturbed: 3.71%, H2O band disturbed: 5.02% , average 4.36%

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide14

6.1) ARA multiplicative

  • Calculated from basic scenarios
  • Random 0.23%, systematic: -0.13% (for +3% intensity)

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide15

6.1) ARA additive

  • Calculated from basic scenarios
  • Random 0.07%, systematic: 0.08% (for +1% @ 750nm for the high latitude dark scenario), ARA multiplicative and additive systematic errors have opposite signs

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide16

6.1) ISRF width

  • Calculated from basic scenarios
  • Random 0.19%, systematic: -0.16%

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide17

6.1) ISRF asymmetry

  • Calculated from gain of the basic scenarios
  • All ISRF errors have only small effects
  • Random 0.33%, systematic: 0.11% from worst case (pattern -3)

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide18

6.1) RSRA

  • RSRA error calculated from sine (upper left), cosine (upper right) and the linear combination of both (lower panel, to simulate all possible phase shifts) which leads to the largest absolute error of different periods
  • Calculated with the gain for the tropical dark scenario provided to ESA (cyan) and as average over the result with the gain matrices of all basic scenarios (black, histogram)
  • Long periods (> 0.53) can mimic the H2O and O2 spectral structure and cause large errors
  • The errors could be smaller in the retrieval depending on the filter and the albedo polynomials
  • Estimated RSRA error: random 13.4%, systematic -11.5% (period 7.83, max. lin comb. average over scenarios )

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide19

6.1) Intra-band co-registration

  • Assuming that 0.1SSD for the whole NIR band can lead to an intensity change of up to 0.018 over the given wavelength range
  • Based on mixing the intensity of each basic scenario with one of a random one with a weighting factor depending on the wavelength increasing from 0 to 0.018 to disturb rather the H2O (left panel) end of the wavelength range and reverse to disturb rather the O2 end (right panel).
  • Estimated intra-band co-registration random error for different directions. O2 band disturbed: 3.71%, H2O band disturbed: 5.02% , average 4.36%
  • No systematic error assumed, could be smaller due to filter and albedo polynomials

slide20

6.1) Scene inhomogeneity

  • Calculated from gain of the basic scenarios
  • Small effects, symmetric
  • Random 0.17%, systematic: +/-0.06%

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide21

6.1) Overview over instrumental errors

  • Spectral calibration error probably not relevant due to shift and squeeze retrieval
  • RSRA and intra-band co-registration dominate the instrumental errors, because they can be similar to the spectral features used for the water vapour retrieval
  • Estimation of intra-band co-registration uncertain
  • It would be better, if ESRA = 0.5* user requirement (= 5%) would apply instead of RSRA

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide22

6.2) Overview over model and scene dependent errors

  • Histogram for model and scene dependent errors (without spectroscopic error)
  • All errors calculated from comparison to basic scenarios
  • Spectroscopic error: difference between SCIAMACHY and SMMI and ECMWF smaller than 10% (where probably the representation and residual cloud error dominates), therefore the 5-10% error of the HITRAN 2012 line strength probably leads to much smaller cross section errors

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide23

6.2) Temperature

  • Calculated from basic scenarios
  • Estimated residual cloud error: random 0.09% for +2K (from mean error because systematic disturbance)

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide24

6.2) Pressure

  • Calculated from basic scenarios
  • Estimated residual cloud error: random 0.67% for 1% (from mean error because systematic disturbance)

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide25

6.2) Surface height

  • Calculated from basic scenarios
  • Estimated residual cloud error: random 0.87% for 100m (from mean error because systematic disturbance)

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide26

6.2) Fluorescence

  • Calculated from basic scenarios, fluorescence from L. Guanter, different solar spectrum
  • Estimated residual cloud error: random 0.11%, systematic 0.04%

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide27

6.2) Thick clouds

  • Comparison of corrected water vapour with reference (left) and result of basic scenarios (right)
  • Estimated residual cloud error: random 4.20%, systematic: -3.34%
  • Based on basic scenarios, thick clouds instead of cirrus clouds
  • Cloud fraction modelled by weighted mean of clouded and basic scenario
  • Used filter detects many, but not all problematic clouds (about 39% pass the filter), better filter could improve the result

weigel@iup.physik.uni-bremen.de

slide28

6.2) Overview over model and scene dependent errors

  • Total random error calculated as root sum square, systematic error as sum of the absolute values
  • Representation error and residual cloud error dominant error sources
  • Spectroscopic error probably smaller
  • Residual cloud error could be improved with stricter cloud filter

slide29

7) Summary

  • Only instrument concept A allows water vapour retrieval from NIR
  • Would allow to extend GOME/SCIAMACHY/GOME2 time series with the same wavelength range
  • Retrieval over ocean possible but simulations worse than expected from SCIAMACHY measurements
  • Model and scene dependent errors: representation error and residual cloud error dominating, spectroscopic error probably smaller
  • All other model and scene dependent errors are small compared to the user requirement
  • Instrumental errors: RSRA dominating and could not meet user requirement dependent on its spectral shape
  • Apart from RSRA and Intra-band co-registration other instrumental errors small compared to the user requirement
  • User requirement (10%) could be met with ESRA 5%: total error 8.75% random, 9.87% systematic but not with “worst case” spectral shape of RSRA (15.20% random, 16.37 systematic)
