NCEO Radiation and Climate

Lead Research Organisation: National Centre for Earth Observation

Abstract

In NCEO's Radiation and Climate Groups, the work is divided between two teams. The first focuses on energy and water cycles. The second on developing and exploiting datasets of Essential Climate Variables. The key long term science goal of the first team is improved understanding and quantification of key processes contributing to the energy and water cycles, aimed at elucidating the relative importance of the various interactions between the cycles over a range of temporal and spatial scales. Work here includes the scientific analysis of relatively long-term existing data records (e.g. GERB, HIRS, SSMI), the exploitation of new, emerging data from instruments such as GPM, and the development of tools to exploit future relevant missions (e.g. EarthCare). The Integrated Climate Data Model Systems team aims to develop and apply relatively mature ECV datasets to significant questions in climate science and climate modelling, where these observations have a central contribution to make in advancing understanding of the Earth system. The current focus of the team is on sea surface temperature, ocean colour, aerosols and clouds, giving it an ocean-atmosphere perspective based on passive optical and thermal sensors.

Description We have used satellite data to develop a better understanding of the interplay between components of the hydrological cycle and the overall radiation budget. This has included work developing climatological datasets from various sensors, exploiting emerging satellite records and evaluating Earth-System component models. Work is ongoing to establish new ways in which to constrain the Earth's radiation budget and understand its variability over a range of spatial and temporal scales. The team is also using the tools they have developed to probe links between surface radiation fluxes, SST, biological activity and the carbon cycle. Particular highlights over the last year include: identification of large scale controls on intense regional convection; unique measurements of far infrared snow and ice surface properties over the Arctic and new insights into aerosol-cloud interactions using volcanic eruptions as a natural laboratory.
Exploitation Route The tools and datasets we develop are open access and so can be used by others who have interests in pure climate research, the use of climate data in the provision of services (educational, commercial), for informing policy or for applied R and D.

Title Processing Bio-Argo particle backscattering at the DAC level 
Description This document does NOT address the issue of particle backscattering quality control (either real-time or delayed mode). As a preliminary step towards that goal, this document seeks to ensure that all countries deploying floats equipped with backscattering sensors document the data and metadata related to these floats properly. We produced this document in response to action item 9 from the first Bio-Argo Data Management meeting in Hyderabad (November 12-13, 2012). If the recommendations contained herein are followed, we will end up with a more uniform set of particle backscattering data within the Bio-Argo data system, allowing users to begin analyzing not only their own particle backscattering data, but also those of others, in the true spirit of Argo data sharing. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2016 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This document describes the methods used to process optical backscattering data collected by Biogoechemical Argo floats: it is the reference document used by data centre to process this new type of data.

Title A global bio-optical database derived from Biogeochemical Argo float measurements within the layer of interest for field and remote ocean color applications 
Description The database here presented includes quality-controlled bio-optical and biogeochemical variables derived from autonomous profiling Biogeochemical Argo float measurements, and supports field and remote ocean color applications. Data represent the first optical depth (i.e., the layer of interest for satellite remote sensing) and have been collected between October 2012 and January 2016, around local noon, in several oceanic areas encompassing the diversity of ocean's trophic environments. In addition to the first optical depth (as derived from the in situ measured depth of the euphotic layer), the presented database is compiled with data of diffuse light attenuation coefficients of photosynthetically available radiation and downward irradiance at 3 wavelengths (380, 412 and 490 nm), chlorophyll a concentration, fluorescent dissolved organic matter, and particle light backscattering at 700 nm. Associated errors to each variable are also reported. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2017 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This new research database has been used to identify bio-optical anomaly in the global ocean. This is important because we have shown in which ocean regions and during which seasons of the year the global ocean-colour bio-optical models are applicable. Results from this analysis have been written into a manuscript which is currently under review.

Title Bio-Argo datasets 
Description 9 of the 11 Bio-Argo floats have been successfully programmed, tested and deployed and have started transmitting data to the LOV website. These data have been made available to BODC (a partner in this project) who will disseminate through their website. The floats are sending profiles (0-1000m) of temperature, salinity, chlorophyll fluorescence, spectral optical backscattering, spectral downward irradiance and dissolved oxygen. Profiles have a 5-day temporal resolution. The floats have been deployed in the Atlantic ocean and appear in the LOV website under the "UK-Bio-Argo" project name.

Title DEEP-C top of atmosphere and surface energy fluxes 1985-2016 
Description In order to study which mechanisms explain the reduced global surface warming rate since around 2000, and where the excess energy is due to rising greenhouse gas, the radiation fluxes (OLR, ASR and NET) at the top of atmosphere (TOA) prior to the CERES period are reconstructed using satellite observations, atmospheric reanalysis (ERA-Interim) and AMIP5 model simulations. The new approach using the mass-corrected atmospheric energy divergencies (transports) from ERA-Interim is employed to estimate the net surface energy fluxes.

Title Near-real-time quality controlled radiometric profiles acquired by Bio-Argo floats 
Description Vertical profiles of Photosynthetically Available Radiation (PAR) and downward irradiance (Ed) at 3 wavelengths (380, 412 and 490 nm) are routinely acquired by autonomous Bio-Argo floats. The database here presented includes radiometric profiles that have been quality-controlled using a specifically developed procedure for real-time distribution of data. The procedure is aimed at verifying only the shape of profiles. In each profile, dark signal, atmospheric clouds, spikes and wave focusing are flagged in a way compliant with the Argo real-time data management system. These data are therefore totally adapted to derive optical quantities such as the diffuse light attenuation coefficients. No quality control on the measured irradiance quantity is performed, which would require development of delayed-mode quality-control procedures. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2016 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This is the first quality controlled database of radiometric profiles collected by Biogeochemical Argo floats made available to the community.

Title SST collected by surfers in the southern UK and western Ireland between 2014 and 2017 
Description This dataset consists of sea surface temperature (SST) data collected by recreational surfers around the southern UK and Western Ireland coastline over the period from 5th January 2014 to 8th February 2017. These data were collected as part of a research project supported by Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Over the study period, the recreational surfers collected 297 independent samples of SST. The surfers were equipped with a UTBI-001 Tidbit V2 Temperature Data Logger and a Garmin etrex 10 GPS. The Garmin etrex 10 device was used to extract GPS information (latitude and longitude) for each surf. The Tidbit V2 temperature logger was attached, using cable-ties, at mid-point to the leash of the surfboards to ensure continuous contact with seawater when surfing, measuring temperature in the top metre of the water column. Roughly every 6 months over the study period, the Tidbit V2 temperature loggers were rigorously compared with a VWR1620-200 traceable digital thermometer (with an accuracy of 0.05 degrees C at the range of 0 to 100 degrees C) at 1 degree C intervals from 6 to 25 degrees C using a PolyScience temperature bath. Over the study period, all sensors performed within the manufacturers technical specifications. A piecewise regression to model was used to correct any Tidbit V2 temperature data collected to remove systematic biases between sensors, such that the errors in each sensor were within the accuracy of VWR1620-200 traceable digital thermometer. Temperature data were collected at 10 second intervals during each surfing session. The data were processed to remove any data collected before and after entering the water and SST were extracted by computing the median of the remaining data. Standard deviations on the remaining data are also provided to give an index of SST variability during each surf session.

PI Contribution Based on schemes for height-resolved ozone and aerosol retrieval developed through NERC NCEO and applied extensively in ESA's Climate Change Initiative (C3S), our team has involvement in the first phase of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, led by ECMWF. Multi-year global satellite data sets on ozone and aerosol are to be produced using the JASMIN computer infrastructure at RAL managed by CEDA. Our retrieval scheme for satellite uv nadir sounders provides sensitivity to tropospheric as well as stratospheric ozone. Our aerosol retrieval scheme (ORAC) was first developed for the dual-view ATSR-2 and is now applicable to a range of satellite vis/ir dual- and single-view imagers.
Collaborator Contribution The C3S ozone and aerosol projects are led by, respectively, BIRA-IASB (Belgium) and DLR (Germany), and involve consortia of European partners: C3S ozone - LATMOS/IPSL(France), DLR (Germany), U.Bremen (Germany), KNMI (Netherlands), Telespazio-Vega (UK), FMI (Finland) C3S aerosol - FMI (Finland), ICARE (France), MET-NO (Norway), ULB (Belgium), BIRA-IASB (Belgium), LMD (France), U.Bremen (Germany), U.Swansea (UK) Our partners provide multi-year global satellite data sets on ozone or aerosol which complement those from our group. In the case of ozone, our partners provide total columns, stratospheric profiles from limb-sounders or height-resolved data from ir nadir sounders whose height-sensitivity differs from that of the uv nadir sounders for which we are responsible. In the case of aerosol, our partners provide stratospheric profiles from limb sounders, optical properties from ir nadir sounders to augment particle size and type information from vis/near-ir wavelengths for which we are responsible, or else aerosol optical depth and other properties from vis/near-ir sensors with which to compare to ours.
Impact The C3S collaboration is only just commencing.

Our aerosol retrieval scheme (ORAC) was first developed for the dual-view ATSR-2 and is now applicable to a range of satellite vis/ir dual- and single-view imagers.
Collaborator Contribution The C3S ozone and aerosol projects are led by, respectively, BIRA-IASB (Belgium) and DLR (Germany), and involve consortia of European partners: C3S ozone - LATMOS/IPSL(France), DLR (Germany), U.Bremen (Germany), KNMI (Netherlands), Telespazio-Vega (UK), FMI (Finland) C3S aerosol - FMI (Finland), ICARE (France), MET-NO (Norway), ULB (Belgium), BIRA-IASB (Belgium), LMD (France), U.Bremen (Germany), U.Swansea (UK) Our partners provide multi-year global satellite data sets on ozone or aerosol which complement those from our group. In the case of ozone, our partners provide total columns, stratospheric profiles from limb-sounders or height-resolved data from ir nadir sounders whose height-sensitivity differs from that of the uv nadir sounders for which we are responsible. In the case of aerosol, our partners provide stratospheric profiles from limb sounders, optical properties from ir nadir sounders to augment particle size and type information from vis/near-ir wavelengths for which we are responsible, or else aerosol optical depth and other properties from vis/near-ir sensors with which to compare to ours.

PI Contribution As part of the preparatory activities for Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) I participated in a collaborative project with EUMETSAT and other stakeholders to look at the potential impact of forward model setup/choice in L2 space for the Infrared Sounder (IRS). For this study I performed analysis on radiative transfer simulations of radiosonde profiles that had been collocated with IASI overpasses in order to develop a common framework for assessing the impact of the forward model on L2 atmospheric profiles. The results were summarised in a report that has now been delivered to EUMETSAT.
Collaborator Contribution EUMETSAT produced the collocated data set and provided forward model calculations from a number simulations provided internally and from external stakeholders. EUMETSAT also supported the work with a visiting scientist position. EUMETSAT also hosted a follow on workshop with the international partners where the results were shown and discussed.
Impact The collaboration outcome was the report "Intercomparison of Hyperspectral Infrared Retrieval Codes: Framework for Assessing RTM impact". The final report is now being circulated amongst the other partners. The report will be accessible via the EUMETSAT website once all partners have had the opportunity to comment.

PI Contribution We will analyse data gathered during AWARE and by applying a modular optimal estimation (OE) algorithm to a combination of lidar, triple-frequency radar and microwave radiometer measurements from the McMurdo AWARE site we will produce a seamless cloud property characterization from the thinnest supercooled liquid or ice layers to the thickest precipitating ice. Within an enhanced cloud mask, outputs to be archived for public use will be liquid and ice water content and the bulk density and characteristic size of one or more ice types present. We will for the first time add to the OE algorithm outputs an identification of active ice physical processes (vapor growth/sublimation, aggregation, riming, ice multiplication) within the same cloud mask by fully exploiting multi-frequency Doppler spectra.
Collaborator Contribution NASA GISS will make synergistic use of the observations collected at the McMurdo base in Antartica in 2016 to evaluate and improve NASA's ModelE Global Climate Model (GCM). They will employ an approach of weather state identification in observations at McMurdo and in decade-long current-climate simulations of ModelE at the McMurdo location. The observed and ModelE-simulated cloud mask based weather state frequencies and cloud properties will be directly compared. Special attention will be placed on the occurrence and radiative consequences of supercooled liquid water, which has been increasingly identified as an important emergent constraint on simulated climate sensitivity, especially its presence at extratropical latitudes.

PI Contribution This project aims at improving the understanding of ice microphysics in stratiform regions. Our group will analyse the data gathered by the Dual-Frequency Precipitation radar onboard of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission core satellite over areas of organized precipitation. The analysis is focused on the assessment of bulk properties of hydrometeors e.g. a characteristic size and ice water content within the instrument field of view. For this purpose, a microphysical retrival based on the optimal estimation framework will be developed. Uncerteinties in the retrieval will be reduced thanks to the in situ observations of ice clouds gathered during several field campaigns.
Collaborator Contribution The statistics based on GPM observationdevelopped by our group will be used by NASA GISS to assess the performance of simulation of deep stratiform rain in ModelE Global Climate Model (GCM).

PI Contribution We presented the first evidences of multiple scattering effects in the GPM measurements. Because of these effects currently used Ku, Ka and DPR rainfall retrievals are not consistent in case of deep convective systems and there is a need for an algorithm that accounts for multiple scattering effects. We presented a preliminary version of a such retrieval and we compared it with standard algorithms.
Collaborator Contribution Because our retrieval is aimed to work for extreme weather cases Simone Tanelli from JPL developed a routine that determines when our algorithm should be performed.

PI Contribution I am the co-chair of this project (see https://pft.ees.hokudai.ac.jp/satellite/members/index.shtml). With the goal of comparing and improving and satellite algorithms that detect phytoplankton functional types, an international effort was put together under the endorsement by the International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG). The project involves participants from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States, with expertise in both satellite algorithm development and in situ observations. As part of my PhD I published the first algorithm inter-comparison paper and have since worked closely with the international group, resulting in the publication of three recent peer-reviewed papers.
Collaborator Contribution The international group has has met almost annually since its establishment in 2013. Together with our partners we have contributed to the publication of three recent peer-reviewed papers and contributed to an International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG) Phytoplankton Functional Type report (15).

PI Contribution I am the co-chair of this project (see https://pft.ees.hokudai.ac.jp/satellite/members/index.shtml). With the goal of comparing and improving and satellite algorithms that detect phytoplankton functional types, an international effort was put together under the endorsement by the International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG). The project involves participants from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States, with expertise in both satellite algorithm development and in situ observations. As part of my PhD I published the first algorithm inter-comparison paper and have since worked closely with the international group, resulting in the publication of three recent peer-reviewed papers.
Collaborator Contribution The international group has has met almost annually since its establishment in 2013. Together with our partners we have contributed to the publication of three recent peer-reviewed papers and contributed to an International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG) Phytoplankton Functional Type report (15).

PI Contribution Honorary Research Fellowships in the sub-Dept Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics have been held by Dr Matthew Christensen, Dr Gareth Thomas and Dr Brian Kerridge in recent years through which research activities of common interest to the Oxford EO Data Group and RAL Remote Sensing Group have been undertaken. These activities have centred on satellite remote-sensing of atmospheric trace gases and particulates. There has been close collaboration in development of the "ORAC" scheme to retrieve cloud and aerosol properties from satellite vis/ir imagers, the derivation of broad-band radiative fluxes and scientific exploitation of those data eg to assess aerosol-cloud interaction in climate. There has also been close collaboration in development of schemes to retrieve trace gas distributions from satellite ir spectrometers.
Collaborator Contribution Our U.Oxford partners, under Prof. Grainger's lead, have provided a strong focus for development of ORAC and scientific exploitation of its satellite data products. They have, in particular, provided specialist expertise in radiative transfer modelling and retrieval theory underpinning the methods applied by our group for both trace gas and particulate sounding.
Impact Oxford student projects have been co-supervised at undergraduate and DPhil levels.

Description OUTREACH - Brighton Science Festival Bright Sparks weekend 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach Regional
Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact We were invited to attend brighton science festival Bright Sparks weekend as the University of Reading Meteorology Dept and NCEO. Bright Sparks is particularly focussed on families. We took a presentation on remote sensing (largely pretty pictures and animations), the NCEO Thermal IR camera, and some of the UoR handheld kit - anemometers etc. The festival has approx 1400 attendees per day, mostly families with children under 14. The thermal camera is a fantastic tool for engagement with a non specialist audience, as it makes the link between what we see on the ground, and what we might see from space very clear. It also explains why having instruments in space at all is useful. A substantial number of children also connected it with police helicopter chases - which is a different, but valid, type of remote sensing!
