Reports are provided giving a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the quality and accuracy of the GlobWave delayed mode data from both ESA and non-ESA sources (spanning 8 satellites and 11 data streams).
An initial report was provided called the Satellite Wave Data Quality Report, which covers the full delayed mode time periods (up to the end of 2009) and compares the satellite observations with in situ Also, the biases between satellite measurements have been studied in a comprehensive crossover analysis. Also, the biases between satellite measurements have been studied in a comprehensive crossover analysis.
There were two annual updates to these comparison. The first covering 2010, was called the Phase 2 Annual Quality Control Report, whereas the second, covering 2011 was called the Phase 3 Annual Quality Control Report.
