This consultancy is primarily to support the calibration and validation of GOME-2 level 1 data products. The main focus of the activity is the calibration and validation of the GOME-2 UV/Visible radiance and polarisation sensitive data, the evaluation of the long-term degradation signatures in GOME-2 data and methods for generation of degradation correction factors, cross-calibration and validation activities both with instruments of a similar class and GOME-2 instruments on Metop-A and Metop-B, and investigation of problems indicated by feedback from level 1 data users.
Associated with this activity is the development of prototype software to support the analysis and supporting documentation such as algorithm specifications, test data descriptions and validation reports. The consultant will be fully integrated in the LEO Support Team within the Meteorological Division but will also be expected to interface with experts across EUMETSAT as required.
The tasks of the Consultant will include:
The tasks of the Consultant will be carried out mainly at EUMETSAT facilities in Darmstadt, but travel within Europe may be required for certain activities.
The GOME-2 level 1 Cal/Val consultant shall have the experience and capability to fulfil the assigned tasks with a minimum of supervision and have good inter-personal skills. He/she shall be familiar with satellite instrument characteristics for Earth observation, in particular calibration and validation of moderate spectral resolution data in the UV/Visible part of the spectrum.
He/she shall have the ability to write concise and comprehensive scientific and technical reports.
In addition to having a University degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, the Consultant shall have a minimum of 5 years experience in the field of remote sensing product data analysis including at least 2 years of experience of UV/Visible calibration and validation.
Specifically the consultant shall have experience in:
The following areas of expertise would be an advantage:
· source code control system, (e.g. Subversion or CVS).
