Minimize Validation Activities version 8

Validation has to ensure that geophysical quantities derived from SCIAMACHY measurements meet quality requirements defined by the mission manager, in particular for scientific studies and applications. SCIAMACHY validation activites  are pursued continuously and are co-ordinated by the SCIAMACHY Validation and Interpretation Group (SCIAVALIG).

The validation reports below provide assessment of the product quality of the SCIAMACHY ESA operational datasets and are based on comparisons with independent collocated measurements in the frame of the various validation projects such as SCILOV, VALID, and MULTI-TASTE.
