FIDUCEO: Collection of Climate data records from Earth Observations Satellites from the FIDUCEO (Fidelity and uncertainty in climate data records from Earth Observations) project

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published

Abstract

The Fidelity and Uncertainty in Climate data records from Earth Observations consists of new climate datasets from Earth Observation Satellites which have received rigorous treatment of uncertainty informed by the discipline of metrology. The collection datasets include Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDRs) containing harmonised radiances and [Thematic] Climate Data Records (CDRs) for ensemble sea and lake surface temperature, tropospheric humidity, aerosol optical depth and surface albedo that are widely applicable and metrologically rigorous.

The archived FCDRs have a length relevant to climate (>20 years) and can support numerous CDRs. The selected CDRs illustrate new capabilities (e.g. equi-probable ensembles) as well as the benefiting from use of the new FCDRs, resulting in improved stability and traceable uncertainties. Specifically, the data collection contains: harmonised radiances (FCDRs) for the following sensors: Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS), Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-B (AMSU-B), Microwave Humidy Sounder (MHS) and Meteosat Visible Infra-Red Imager (MVIR); and geophysical datasets with uncertainties.
