Instrument status & calibration

Calibration Landing Pages

On this page you’ll find guidance on how to use the data from EUMETSAT’s satellite instruments (past and present) for operational and scientific applications.

The focus is on the calibration of the instruments, providing information on:

  • Calibration specifications and methods,
  • Events that affect calibration,
  • Monitoring the calibration state of the instrument.

The information is separated into five distinct sections:

  • Instrument Specification (documents on instruments baseline physical basis).ia
  • Instrument Events (database of calibration related events).
  • Instrument Monitoring (database or documents with information on the instrument state).
  • Data Outages (graphs with information on instrument outage dates).
  • Relevant Documents.
