Routine Validation

Routine validation is being carried out by the Validation Data Analysis Facility (VDAF) and operates based on a long heritage of validation efforts. A large portion of the routine, network-based validation FRM data used by this system is provided by the ESA Atmospheric Validation Data Centre (EVDC). Additional validation data suppliers for this work include TCCON, WOUDC, NDACC, and COR2. Open-source HARP software tools are being used at VDAF to process validation data and produce the output needed for routine validation reporting. Further, a VDAF web portal will be available soon for evaluating validation data including plots and quality reports. The VDAF portal is now online and accessible by clicking the image or link listed above.
