    Job Description

    EUMETSAT supports the development of climate information services through the rescue, re-calibration and re-processing of long series of satellite observations and the validation of the resulting climate data records.               

    Within the EUMETSAT Climate Services Team, the Climate Product Expert will develop and evaluate bias correction models for the assimilation of infrared and microwave instrument radiance data records into the ECMWF reanalysis model, in support of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).

    The climate product expert will also develop and validate climate records of Level-1 products extracted from data of historical microwave atmospheric sounding instruments, after assessment of data quality biases against the ECMWF reanalysis model.

    DUTIES

    Implementation of radiative transfer simulations for full time series of infrared and microwave imaging and sounding instrument data records using global reanalysis data as inputs;

    Scientific analysis of climate records and radiative transfer simulations for data from different infrared and microwave instruments to determine structure and source of differences;

    Development and adjustment of bias correction models for the ECMWF reanalysis model;

    Development and application of quality control/evaluation methods for meta and raw data from microwave atmospheric sounding instruments;

    Scientific analysis and development of surface, cloud and precipitation flags for historic microwave sounder data;

    Support to the implementation of all developed methods in the EUMETSAT operational environment and systems;

    Compilation of relevant scientific and technical documentation as well as peer reviewed scientific publications;

    Compilation of presentations and reports for reporting to C3S and participation in C3S progress meetings, as required.

    SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

    In-depth knowledge and demonstrated experience in:

    Analysis of microwave Level-1 satellite data including quality control/evaluation methods;

    Radiative transfer in the infrared and microwave spectral ranges;

    Bias correction methods for satellite data used in data assimilation systems;

    Time series analysis methods applicable to satellite and model data;

    Knowledge in measurement uncertainty analysis (metrology) would be an advantage;

    Experience in calibration of microwave satellite instrument measurements including re- and cross-calibration methods would be an advantage;

    Programming using a higher programming language as well as scripting languages, such as Python;

    Good interpersonal skills and a proven ability to apply these to the interactions within a team and across teams in an international environment;

    A University degree in Atmospheric Physics, Remote Sensing, or another Image relevant discipline;

    Candidates must be able to work effectively in English and have some knowledge of French.

     

    EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS

    The initial contract will be until 30 June 2021 but may be extended subject to availability of continued Copernicus funding from the to-be-approved EU Multi-annual Financial Framework.
