Author Affiliations +
Radiometric calibration often employs several independent vicarious calibration techniques to increase robustness and accuracy. We present a statistical methodology for combining results in a hierarchical scheme. The method, developed for the PROBA-V remote sensing mission, is based on handling and propagating of accuracies in accordance with the ISO GUM. Robust estimation is performed and outliers removed. Results over different sites are combined using weighted averaging. Weighted linear regression is used for temporal averaging. Results from different methods are combined taking into account possible bias. Finally an operational update strategy is proposed which relies on a significance criterion.
