ACEPWG Calibration

Polarimetric Calibration

Radiometric and Polarimetric calibration has been performed individually for each instrument, so the ACEPWG is a forum for the sharing of techniques and progress in the development of a possible calibration intercomparison. More details will be provided as this effort progresses.
