Newly proposed reference datasets improve weather satellite data quality

Researchers at the University of Maryland, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System have proposed in-orbit reference datasets for calibrating weather satellites. A presentation given at the American Geophysical Union’s fall meeting in December 2016 demonstrated that using these references reduced errors in microwave and infrared weather satellites to fractions of a degree Celsius.
