Quality controls the data through comparison of observations with previous forecasts to identify and eliminate spurious data. By performing this comparison repeatedly, it is possible to calibrate observing systems and identify biases or changes in observation system performance. Validates and improves the hydrologic models by continuous model confrontation with real data. This helps to identify model weaknesses such as systematic errors and correct them. 4. Example of how data assimilation supplements data and complements observations.

2 mb for vapor pressure. Lakshmi et al. (2001) compared AVHRR and TOVS derived air temperatures to observations from a network of surface airway stations in the Arkansas Red River Basin; they reported standard deviations of 3–5 K. All these studies quoted above, show similar differences between satellite and ground data. These differences are expected as comparisons are made between a point (ground data) and a spatially averaged (satellite data) value. This indicates a good agreement between satellite and ground data.
