Development and Validation of AMSR 2 Environmental Data Records (EDR’s)

The AMSR2 EDR algorithms for precipitation and ocean retrievals were delivered to NOAA OSPO Fall 2013 and transitioned into operations. The EDRs will be operationally available in Spring 2014.

Enhancements for Geo-SST Products

Code is being written to change outputs to netCDF4.  It is important to integrate this effort with the reprocessing project (JMJM_RGPB_13), which has required significant extra effort to overcome data format issues.

Development of a Bayesian Cloud Mask

A method for rapid generation of cloudy probability distribution functions has been adapted for use over ocean surfaces.  New parameter-dependent probability distribution functions are being generated for a number of different instrument parameters.  Final selection of optimal parameter/channel sets will commence soon.

Sea Surface Temperature Continuity for MSG

All necessary upgrades have been made to the Geo-SST processing system and successfully transitioned to operations.  New Single Sensor Error Statistics have been generated and incorporated to facilitate operational generation of GHRSST L2P SST data for Meteosat-10 (MSG-3).

Reprocessing Geo-Polar Blended SST analyses in support of NOAA Coral Reef Watch

All required major script and code changes have been made and data procured for all geostationary sensors for 2004 – present (~150 TB).  Extensive testing has been performed on a sample month (August 2013) which has had the added benefit of repopulating the archive with correct data, since the upgrade to physical retrieval within NOAA Operations contained a minor implementation bug which had caused errors in the gridded output files for that month.  All code changes are being coordinated with other tasks to ensure that the reprocessing methodology is as up-to-date as possible.
