First year review of MetEOC-1

The year 1 review of the project focused on developments of instrumentation for laboratory and field based measurements, as well as for the SI uncertainty assessment of radiative transfer algorithms.

The MetEOC consortium demonstrated the use of:

  1. high performance black body targets for an airborne limb sounding experiment,
  2. spectrally tuneable laser based sources for the calibration of stray light and radiance in the field and laboratory (<0.5% uncertainty) and,
  3. a new method to assign SI traceability to radiative transfer models based on simulations of calibrated 3D targets.
