Short summary
Data fusion is an important tool to reduce data volume and to improve data quality. This paper introduces a generalization of the complete data fusion method, which takes into account interpolation and coincidence errors. This upgraded algorithm extends the applicability of the technique to a wider range of cases. In fact, it also makes it possible to fuse vertical profiles of atmospheric parameters when they are represented on different altitude grids and refer to different true profiles.
