1 GSICS Executive Panel 10 JMA GPRC Report 6-8 June 2010 WMO HQ, Geneva Yoshihiko Tahara Meteorological Satellite Center Japan Meteorological Agency

2 MTSAT Infrared Inter-Calibration (Progresses since EP-8 via EP-9) May 2010: ATBD and GSICS Product Acceptance Form (GPAF) were submitted July 2010: MTSAT-2 IR inter-calibration system and its monitoring web page were implemented simultaneously with the switchover to MTSAT-2 from MTSAT-1R July 2010: GSICS Correction for MTSAT IR entered the Demonstration Phase of the GSICS Procedure for Product Acceptance (GPPA) September 2010–: GSICS Correction data have been uploaded operationally on the EUMETSAT GSICS server (THREDDS) –January 2011: Clear Sky Radiance (CSR) product was experimentally reprocessed by using the MTSAT IR GSICS Correction, and its preliminary Observing System Experiment was performed Ongoing: Review is underway to enter the Pre-operation Phase Ongoing: MTSAT IR Near Real-Time Corrections (NRTC) is under development 6-8 June 2011, GSICS-EP10

3 Review of MTSAT IR GSICS Correction (tentative) Comments from reviewers regarding the usability of MTSAT IR GSICS Correction at this moment Too far from the GSICS portal (wiki) to reach MTSAT GSICS corrections Slow access to the GSICS wiki page from Japan Once knowing the place of the MTSAT GSICS corrections, easy and fast to get Enough information in meta-data Suggestions to MTSAT ATBD – Tutorial to use GSICS correction expected – No explanations on LOOK-UP TABLE, and Radiance and Tb conversion

4 Preliminary Experiment on CSR CSR data were regenerated by using MTSAT IR GSICS Correction (No tuning for cloud screening parameters was performed) Regenerated TBs of the MTSAT WV ch. are about 0.5 K higher than original TBs (left chart), that decreases departure between observation and NWP One month Observing System Experiment shows that number of CSR data assimilated in NWP are increased (right chart) WV TB differences w/ and w/o GSICS WV TB differences w/ and w/o GSICS Numbers of CSR data assimilated in OSE

5 MTSAT-2 IR images contain midnight calibration error, which becomes large during eclipse seasons (right charts) To use GSICS correction, SST parameters should be tuned again. Otherwise, significant biases would be appeared. (bottom chart) If diurnal bias information is obtained from GSICS, better SST product would be expected Experiment on SST SST(GSICS) – SST(Original) 8 January March 2011 MTSAT 12um – AIRS Asc.(13:30) MTSAT 12um – AIRS Dec.(01:30) MTSAT 12um – AIRS (All orbits) GSICS Correction Jul 2010Jun 2011

6 MTSAT Visible Calibration (Progresses since EP-8 via EP-9) September 2010: MTSAT-2 visible calibration system and its monitoring web page were implemented Vicarious calibration comparing RT simulated radiances over Cloud-free ocean, land (bare ground on Australia) and uniformed liquid cloud top by using P, T, WV, W-surf from NWP re-analysis, ozone from TOMS and Land surface albedo and cloud parameters from MODIS Collaborative researches with the Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute (AORI), the University of Tokyo Ongoing: Investigate on using ice cloud as the brightest target Ongoing: Investigate on GMS VIS calibration before MODIS era Collaborative researches with the Center for Environmental Remote Sensing (CEReS), Chiba university Ongoing: Examine to generate re-calibrated global GEOSAT data Ongoing: Examine to retrieve downward SW flux and validate it 6-8 June 2011, GSICS-EP10

10 Response to Action EP 8.2 Prototype of a unified GSICS bias monitoring Web page 6-8 June 2011, GSICS-EP10 May 2010: Action EP 8.2 (JMA, in consultation with GCC, to develop a prototype of a unified web page….) was adopted February 2011: Prototype HTML was presented at the GRWG and GDWG Web meeting for review
