SCIAMACHY Level 2 Product Delta-Validation Results and Level 2 Reprocessing Interruption
26 October 2010
The SCIAMACHY Validation Teams organised in SCIAVALIG performed a first validation of the new SCIAMACHY Level 2 Version 5.01 products based on a delta validation dataset.
In general, the comparison showed good agreement of the SCIAMACHY products with reference algorithms and the available ground based validation data.
The major results of the investigations are the following:
For the CO products it is expected that a minor upgrade on the processing baseline will lead to a significantly improved dataset. Therefore it was decided to interrupt the SCIAMACHY Level 2 reprocessing with the processor version 5.01 until the new configuration file for CO has been generated and tested.
