Short summary
Accurate observations of lead fraction are of high importance for model evaluation and/or assimilation into models. In this work, consistent quantitative error estimation of an existing lead fraction data set obtained from passive microwave observations is completed using Synthetic Aperture Radar data. A significant bias in the data set is found, and possible improvement in the methodology is suggested, so that the pixel-wise error is reduced by a factor of 2 on average.
