  • comparisons with other data have been performed on a global scale, covering at least the latitude bands -90/-60, -60/-30, -30/30, 30/60, 60/90;
  • comparisons with other data have been performed for different times, covering at least the four seasons;
  • comparisons have been performed with different independent measurement techniques or models of known quality.
