What are the strategies of GSICS?

Best practices/requirements for
prelaunch characterisation
Improve on-orbit calibration by
developing an integrated intercalibration system
Initially by LEO-GEO Inter-satellite/
inter-sensor calibration

This will allow us to:

Greater coverage of diurnal cycle

Both scene and instrument calibration variability

Important for 3-axis stabilized spacecraft

Meteosat-9/SEVIRI can be collocated with overpasses of
each Metop
Use as transfer standard

Define Delta Corrections in SEVIRI channel space
Strictly Meteosat-9/SEVIRI
But SRF Differences expected to have negligible impact (TBC)

Delta Corrections have same form as GSICS Corrections
e.g. linear function of radiance but may be zero!
But include finite uncertainty

Define only one as the calibration reference
All others are regarded as calibration transfer
standards

Schematic diagram showing how double differencing against a third
sensor as an intermediate transfer reference can be used to intercalibrate two instruments without requiring direct comparison of their
observations. Dashed red lines show collocated observations from pairs
of instruments. Black arrows show calibration transfers.

Conclusions
Double differencing method based on the three-way comparison of Metop-A/IASI and Metop-B/IASI in the channel
space of SEVIRI
Small differences between these functions provides an indirect comparison between the IASI instruments on Metop-A
and B,
- which is not possible by direct means due to their orbital configurations

This approach allows different references to be used to generate Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDRs)
by inter-calibrating a series of instruments, while ensuring their traceability to a common reference
