1 Validation of SCIAMACHY polarisation using POLDER as a reference (bonus: reflectance validation) Tiger Team Meeting 23, SRON, 23 May 2006

2 POLDER imager CCD detector matrix bandfilter carousel wide FOV lens resolution: 6 × 7 km 2 polarisation at 443, 670, and 865 nm well-calibrated 443, 443, 490, 565, 670, 763, 765, 865, 910 nm

3 Intercomparison: SCIAMACHY versus POLDER  look for collocated data (position, time) with identical viewing geometry a.POLDER image 670 nm) + previous images b.POLDER viewing angles (in green). In black: SCIAMACHY nadir pixels of 1.0 s IT c.POLDER viewing angles for data where the viewing geometry is similar to SCIAMACHY’s d.For the same measurement data again the 670 nm. In white: SCIAMACHY nadir pixels of 0.25 s IT Data can be compared

4 Reflectance: spectral averaging --- IT = 0.25 s --- IT = 1.00 s  transform SCIAMACHY reflectance into 9 broadband values for comparison with POLDER broadband reflectance measurements

5 Results for the reflectance: (SCIAMACHY s/w version 5.01) × = cloudy + = cloud-free Cloudy data are less reliable; fit results for cloud- free data Slope ≠1  (known) calibration problem of SCIAMACHY

6 Reflectance: comparison with other “sources”  10–20% error in radiometric calibration….

7 Results (polarisation) (SCIAMACHY s/w version 5.01) × + = water × + = land PMD 2: something is wrong, bad correlation PMD 3: looks better, but look at the slope PMD 4: a lot of serious errors  polarisation product of bad quality  much better than version 4.01, though  IT = 0.25 s

8 PMD 4: simple check  IT = 0.25 s - zero-point problem - “unphysical” values

9 Conclusions radiometric calibration SCIAMACHY contains errors reflectance 10-20% too low in visible wavelength range for the first time successful polarisation intercomparison polarisation errors for PMD 2 and 3 polarisation retrieval of PMD 4 is in a very bad shape

10 EXTRA SLIDES: PMD 4 versus single scattering value: Q/I and U/I IT = 0.25 s IT = 1.00 s
