Abstract

The Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) significantly shortens the time to detect the magnitude of climate change at the high confidence level that decision makers need, with its high degree of accuracy. The CLARREO addresses these concerns by providing improved absolute accuracy in global satellite observations that can be traced continuously on orbit to international physical standards, such as the Système Internationale (SI) standards for seconds, kelvins, and watts. CLARREO needs to lead to different observing strategies than that have been employed in previous weather and climate satellites. CLARREO aims to provide highly accurate and SI-traceable decadal change observations sensitive to the most critical but least understood climate forcings, responses, and feedbacks.
