[ACG46-P15] Development status of the GCOM-W AMSR2 research products
Keywords:satellite remote sensing, Water cycle monitoring, Microwave radiometer
For example, regarding the sea surface temperature product, we updated the algorithm to change the method of sea surface wind speed correction and conduct more strict quality check to remove inappropriate buoy data, etc. Then, we calculated the root-mean-square-error (RMSE) between the sea surface temperature by AMSR2 and by buoy data provided by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The verification period is from July 2012 to June 2016. Result shows that the RMSE is 0.52 ℃ in new version and improved while that of previous version is 0.56 ℃. In addition, we update the algorithms of research products that are already open to public, 10 GHz sea surface temperature and all-weather sea surface wind speed, and those accuracies are also improved. At the meeting, we will present the detailed verification results of new version of standard products and research products for AMSR2.
