Description

The success of the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) brings us into a new era of
global daily Earth observations, ranging from the faintest light of human settlements and air glows, to
the dramatic events of hurricanes and forest fires, as well as the subtle changes in the planet Earth
which we call home. At the heart of all satellite applications, calibration/validation of the instrument
measurements and derived products is essential. Satellite product calibration and validation have
become increasingly more important and challenging, in order to meet the stringent requirements for
accurate and quantitative data for numerical weather prediction, climate change detection, and
environmental intelligence. Validation is required not only for the satellite measurements, but also for
all geophysical retrievals, including aerosols, cloud properties, radiation budget, sea surface
temperature, ocean color, active fire, albedo, snow and ice, vegetation, as well as nightlights from
human settlements
