Ether & IASI CALibration/VALidation
From its IPSL center via the EUMETCAST system (antenna and acquisition chain), Ether data center download the IASI data in NRT. With the Metop-B launch, the LMD team brought its expertise in the IASI-B data inter comparison/inter calibration framework in addition to the calibration/validation work done by CNES and EUMETSAT. Thus, the Ether technical center of the IPSL, in cooperation with the LMD team, prepared the environment required for IASI-A and IASI-B processings with the distribution of the first IASI MetOp-B data.
A complete article describes the Ether data center and IASI calibration/validation. It is available here.
