3 CLARREO Science Meeting July 2010 MGM: 5a- 3 Infrared Baseline Science Measurement: CLARREO shall obtain infrared radiance spectra of the Earth and its atmosphere using nadir views from orbiting satellites. The benchmark and reference intercalibration measurements require: a Broad spectral coverage of the earth emitted spectrum, including the Far- Infrared, that captures climate trend information about atmospheric structure, composition, clouds, and surface properties; b Spectral resolution chosen for greenhouse gas species separation and for vertical structure information; c Radiance measurement systematic error that corresponds to < 0.1 K brightness temperature radiometric calibration uncertainty (3-  confidence, excluding random noise) for the range of expected earth scene temperatures and wavelengths relevant to climate; d Spatial and temporal sampling sufficient to provide global coverage and reduce sampling errors to levels that degrade the measured climate trend accuracy by less than 15%, and that degrade the time to detect climate trends less than 10%. The degradation of trend accuracy is relative to the limits of accuracy caused by climate natural variability. Level 1 IR Requirements

4 CLARREO Science Meeting July 2010 MGM: 5a- 4 Spectral Range: 200 to 2000 cm -1 (2760 cm -1 goal) –Rationale:  Spectral Range for Climate Benchmark and Fingerprinting  Spectral Range for Reference Intercalibration of Longwave Broadband Sensors (CERES; GERB; Megha-Tropiques) Spectral Resolution: 0.5 cm -1 unapodized –Rationale:  Ability to resolve effects of temperature and water vapor as functions of altitude Systematic Uncertainty : 0.100 Kelvin (3 , i.e. coverage factor, k=3) –Rationale:  0.1 K is half of the expected trend in global temperature change per decade IFOV: No less than 25 km –Rationale: Enables climate record, reference intercalibration Ground sampling: One calibrated spectrum every 200 km or less –Rationale: Nyquist samples the autocorrelation length of the radiation field Nadir Viewing within +/- 0.2 deg –Rationale: Keeps temporal bias between satellites < few milli-Kelvin Level 2 requirements defined Level 2 IR Instrument Requirements CL.SYS.1.REQ.1001

8 CLARREO Science Meeting July 2010 MGM: 5a- 8 Maintaining Accuracy On-Orbit On-orbit, SI traceable measurements of temperature and emissivity High accuracy determination of the time-dependent bias is critical to creating trusted, enduring climate records. Traditional Approach: Space-based measurements of emitted thermal radiances are determined using blackbodies that have been well-characterized on the ground. The dominant sources of uncertainties include those in the BB cavity temperature and emissivity. Challenge: On-orbit sensors generally change/degrade over time. -- Temperature sensors and electronics drift -- BB surface coatings are known to change after extended exposure to LEO environment (e.g., atomic oxygen, outgassing) Solution: SI traceable measurements that quantify the BB T and  on-orbit

13 CLARREO Science Meeting July 2010 MGM: 5a- 13 CLARREO, with its climate focus, looks to generate accurate radiances on annual to semi-annual time scales, on global average –Random uncertainty is present as noise on the measured radiance –Random uncertainty is reduced by averaging  More than 2 x 10 6 spectra per year reduce random uncertainty by ~ 1440 IR FTS noise is dependent on detector type (Pyroelectric vs. Solid State) Prior analyses indicated single spectrum noise: 0.05 K < NeDT < 10 K –Annual average uncertainty due to random noise: 0.034 mK to 7 mK Random noise substantially impacts time to calibrate on ground and in-orbit Examined current off-the-shelf pyroelectric devices to verify performance Random Measurement Uncertainty Random uncertainty is not a science concern

44 NIST-CLARREO (IR-Instrument) Partnership - Activities Funded in Next Few Months - 1. QCL Laser (23  m) will be purchased this summer. The laser will be used to measure the BRDF of various candidate surface treatments. It will also be used for Reflectometry measurements in CHILR to measure reflections (emissivity) of actual assembled blackbodies 2. STEEP-3 Emissivity Modeling Software will be upgraded to incorporate BRDF for better blackbody modeling and design prior to construction. BRDF Integrating Sphere

45 CLARREO Calibration Facility Requirements - Activities Under Consideration for Phase A - CHILR Investments: Complete Hemispherical IR Laser Reflectometer will provide necessary data to the blackbody designers in order to develop high-fidelity models of emitting surfaces at wavelengths beyond ~15  m. Currently, there are no facilities that can acquire this data. These data will be fed back into the STEEP-3 upgrade as actual working parameters. CBS3 Investments: The Controlled Background Spectroradiometry and Spectrophotometer System will serve as NIST’s premier calibration facility for high accuracy (15 mK at 10  m / 300 K k = 2) investigations of blackbodies and detectors in the near to far IR (Range of operation: 1  m to 100  m, 190K to 350 K) This will provide absolute radiometric calibrations of the CLARREO flight blackbodies with high accuracy and confidence CHILR CBS 3 Cavity Integrating sphere Detector Sphere rotation & X-Y stage 23 µm 10.6µm

46 46 Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) IR Instrument Phase A Trades

47 47 T1: Operating Temperature and Control T2: Optical Alignment Sensitivity T3: Detector Frequency Response T4: Temperature Measurement Electronics T5: Linearity Potential Trades discussed on following charts List of Potential Phase-A Trades

48 48 Operating temperature, thermal control, and thermal knowledge –Examines the trade between accurately measuring changes in temperature, reducing sensitivity to temperature changes by reducing the operating temperature, and the difficulty in controlling temperature at different operating temperatures. –Includes scene select mirror and baffles, fore optics and baffles, temperature difference between beamsplitter and compensator, and internal reference blackbody source. T1: Operating Temperature and Control

49 49 Optical alignment Sensitivity –Examine the ability of the optical path (including input and output optical axes, the beamsplitter and corner cube mounts, and FTS scan mechanism) to maintain shear alignment over the 15s calibration cycle. –Derive tolerance for changes in temperature gradients in the optical bench over the calibration period. T2: Optical Alignment

50 50 –Examine the trade between leveling the frequency response of the pyroelectric detector (by boosting gain for high frequency?), maintaining well-behaved group delay in the signal chain, and maintaining velocity reproducibility in the FTS scan mechanism. –Right now the fact that the pyroelectric response decreases so rapidly with frequency means that slight changes in FTS scan velocity give significant changes in responsivity and decrease calibration accuracy. T3: Detector Frequency Response

51 51 Electronics trade to evaluate best sensors for measuring absolute temperature (used primarily for calibration and verification sources) vs. best sensors for measuring small relative changes in temperature where you don't really care so much about the absolute temperature. Suspect that this means using a very linear temperature sensor; otherwise you need to know the temperature to get the temperature difference. There are places like the reference source where we need to measure changes in temperature over 15s to significantly better than 10 mK, but don't really need to know the absolute temperature. T4: Temperature Measurement Electronics

52 52 Electronics linearity knowledge and stability. –Sensitivity analysis to see if detector signal processing chain, detector through preamp and ADC to bits, can be linearized to better than 3e-5 (1> sigma) and if the electronics gain can be kept stable over 15s to better than 0.01%. T5: Linearity

53 CLARREO Science Meeting July 2010 MGM: 5a- 53 Thermometry – –Challenging radiometric accuracy requirements (0.1 K, k = 3) result in stringent accuracy of temperature measurements in the entire IR system –Addressing requirements through instrument modeling, –Temperature metrology labs (e.g., Langley, UW, SDL) are characterizing thermistor and PRT performance Radiometry – sources for calibration across the spectrum –Verifying accuracy of radiometric sources continue to be an issue –Continuing to work with NIST –Mlynczak to visit PTB/Berlin (NIST for Germany) July 19 –Will view their far-IR and Thz synchrotron sources for possible applicability to CLARREO Issues and Concerns

54 CLARREO Science Meeting July 2010 MGM: 5a- 54 IR Instrument Suite Concept meets the science objectives and is feasible –Instrument –Calibration (preflight and on orbit) Instrument design concept is viable –Uncertainty budget is defined and continually being updated –Key trade studies have been completed; Others defined for Phase A Plans to mature technologies are in place –IIPs –Breadboard under development Engaged fully with NIST Fully experienced team is (pending IPT and SDT selection) in place and ready to begin Phase A Ready to proceed into Phase A IR Summary & Status
