Minimize IDEAS+ Cal/Val Workshop

The IDEAS+ (Instrument Data quality Evaluation and Analysis Service) Calibration/Validation workshop was held on 5 and 6 July 2016 at ESRIN, to assess the status of the activities and consider the planning of future activities.

It also continued the discussions from previous meetings to identify common approaches and synergies in the following areas:

  • Calibration;
  • Level 1 processing;
  • Traceability;
  • Characterisation and Uncertainty estimates;
  • Ground based measurements.

The programme covered the full range of cal/val activities included within the SPPA IDEAS+ contract except lakes and coastal zones/oceans.
 

The programme and presentations are available below. The executive summary is available here.
