The SatWG also contributes to the goals of the Integrated Global Observing Strategy (IGOS)/Atmospheric Chemistry Theme (IGACO). In particular, it serves as NDACC contact point to the Committee on Earth Observing Satellites/Atmospheric Chemistry Sub-Group (CEOS/ACSG). The activities of the NDACC SatWG include:

  • Advisory support in the development of satellite validation programs;
  • Development of comparison and validation techniques;
  • Geophysical validation of satellite data products;
  • Exchange of experience in remote sensing;
  • Interactions with similar bodies in the frame of IGOS.

Meteorological data interpolated to NDACC stations are provided through this Working Group.

NCEP Data C. Long (NOAA/NCEP) – NCEP temperature and height data interpolated to NDACC stations are available in the NDACC database.
