CGLOPS : LSWT Validation (AATSR)
LSWT Validation (AATSR)

10-day Lake Surface Water Temperature Validation - AATSR instrument

The scientific validation of the CGLOPS 10-day LSWT data from observations of the AATSR instrument on Envisat is reported in this section. The time span of the dataset is from May-2002 to Apr-2012.

The validation has been carried out through comparison with independent in situ surface temperature measurements shown in Figure 1 for both the LSWT and the correspondent LSWT uncertainty.

The validation has been performed for each site where in situ measurements were available (Per site), for each lake (Per lake) and for the correspondent uncertainty. The complete report on the validation can be found at the CGLOPS LSWT site.
