Intercomparison of on-orbit sensors has become possible with the technique of Simultaneous Nadir Observations (SNO) when both satellites observe the same foot-print at nearly the same time they cross each other in their orbits (11).
To allow a consistent intercomparison of results across research groups, participants were requested to submit results in a standardized format and with a list of items describing the details of source apportionment analysis (e.g., type and extent of rotation, treatment of outliers, criteria used to include species in the analysis).
An intercomparison exercise has been carried out using human urine with added inorganic arsenic, MMA, and DMA as a test material (6).
To simulate climate response under INDC scenarios, running a full suite of comprehensive Earth system models (ESMs), such as the CMIP5 models (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project), is unrealistic due to the high computational cost, while running only one certain model is not representative of climate response of the Earth system due to potential model biases.
The simulated data were generated by a collection of 20 climate models called the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project version 3 or "CMIP3."
The simulations were part of NCAR's contribution to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5).
* Intercomparisons--Procedures should be established to enable intercomparison of sensors between satellites, both US and non-US.
Thus, what is needed, says Presser, is a suite of PM samples in which the pedigree of each PM class is clearly traceable to the source operating conditions and associated uncertainties, and in which the PM can be reproduced with specified uncertainties so that intercomparison of results from different analytical instruments can be made on an equal footing.
