SCIAMACHY (Scanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY) compares light coming from the sun to light reflected by the Earth, which provides information on the atmosphere through which the Earth-reflected light has passed.
The X-PReSS project is focused on:
• SCIAMACHY NRT L0 collection Test Period (from 01-01-2010 to 31-08-2010, plus 8 orbits for specific cases)
• ECONS processor integration
• Processing of test period L0 NRT to consolidated L0 with ECONS
Optional activities based on the outcome assessment from IDEAS +:
• SCIAMACHY L0 collection (cL0 dataset, source DLR).
• SCIAMACHY L0 NRT unconsolidated dataset (ESRIN/Kiruna) collection.
• SCIAMACHY L0 Consolidation Remaining Dataset.
• Completeness assessment and comparison of NRT master with existing cL0 dataset (source DLR) to highlight discrepancies (if any).
• SCIAMACHY L0 ECONS Delta Processing (NRT data – 994 selected orbits).
