Performance indicators

Ssalto/Duacs performance indicators are computed daily using the status of several components of the system :

  • Input data availability
  • Input data coverage
  • Input data quality
  • Output product quality

This is done for each and every currently working satellite, and combined to obtain the overall status.

These quality indicators are available either mission per mission or as a combination of those (Overall column). The main indicator (Column Overall, line Mission status) sums up the quality situation of the Duacs system. It is the synthesis of intermediate indicators, defined for each mission, considering each mission's specificities. Five color levels have been defined: green, yellow, orange, red and black. Good system performances correspond to green and yellow indicators. A three-day history is provided along with the 'Today' indicator, so as to follow anomaly evolution. When clicking on the colored circles, an history of this indicator value is available.

Key Perfomance Indicators description

Mission per mission indicators

Four key indicators have been defined, corresponding to the main processing levels of the Duacs system (see Duacs handbook):

  1. Input data availability: assesses the ancillary and raw data delivery delay with regard to the nominal delay.
  2. Input data coverage: gives an indication of missing data,
  3. Input data quality: this indicator synthesizes three different pieces of information,
    • Editing process: thresholds are usually used on altimetric and instrumental corrections to reject erroneous data. When exceeding a certain amount of rejected data, this indicator is no longer green.
    • Performances at crossovers: thresholds on the standard deviation of sea surface height differences at crossovers.
    • Along-track performances: thresholds on the standard deviation of along-track sea level anomaly.
  4. Output product quality: mean of the formal mapping error (FME) after computation of the gridded map.

These indicators are computed for each mission. The global mission status indicator is an average of indicators 1 to 4.

Indicators combining the mission per mission indicators

For indicators 1, 2 and 3, the combined indicator is induced from the corresponding mission per mission ones thanks to a pondered mean. The weight of each mission is related to the trust degree of the mission.

Combined indicator 4 is computed thanks to the merged gridded map. Therefore, a degraded Formal Mapping Error from all the mission per mission maps does not necessarily infer a degraded Formal Mapping Error on the multimission product, given the optimum missions' sampling (see e.g. Key Performance Indicator figure for 2009/05/27).
