Algorithms Calibration datasets Calibration references Software and hardware tools Monitoring assessment reports Standards, conventions, GSICS Products for users of satellite data, including calibration corrections/coefficients GSICS Algorithms, which describe intercalibration processes, (described by ATBD) GSICS Monitoring Reports, assessments GSICS Reference datasets, including Solar spectrum, GSICS Tools for use by inter-calibration developers, (GIRO, SBAF, ) GSICS recommended standards, conventions and guidelines, GSICS User Services, information Routine Generation of GSICS Products Decision: GSICS should aim to provide users with the most recent available calibration data at the highest available update frequency, allow users to decide how to apply it for their applications. For example: Considering calibration changes driven by long-term drift: Users interested in long-term trends may want to apply frequent updates to the calibration corrections (expected to be smaller) to avoid large, artificial jumps in the calibration time series, Users interested in near real-time applications may want to apply the updates less frequently (e.g. only when it exceeds a certain threshold) to avoid additional calibration noise. 2/4/20
