Communicating to the FCI MAG members the status of the MTG program.
Communicating to the FCI MAG members the status of the FCI space segment and ground performances.
Communicating to the FCI MAG members the status of the Request For Deviations and Spectral Response Functions.
Presenting the plan for the FCI commissioning.
Organising the MAG contribution for the FCI commissioning.
Objectives and outcomes
The main objectives of the meeting were to:
Update MAG members on the status of the Instrument and EUMETSAT’s plan for the commissioning
Discuss the commissioning readiness and MAG involvement during the commissioning
The major outcomes and recommendation were:
Increase the frequency of the MAG meetings towards and during commissioning.
A soon as early commissioning data become available it would be useful to have short monthly meetings in order to discuss and touch base on status, actions, achievements etc.
The MAG members share the idea of increasing the frequency of the MAG meetings during commissioning and also encourages the use of email/confluence exchange in between meetings such that potential open questions/analyses can be thought through and discussed before the meetings.
Look in detail at RGBs and tweak the recipes during the FCI commissioning.
Put together a dataset of real SEVIRI and FCI data for a set of scenes during commissioning for this purpose.
Pay extra attention to first true colour RGB.
Important image for press purposes. Appropriate corrections (Rayleigh and green band) are important.
Perform at least one full day each of rapid scanning experiments in June and October 2023 respectively.
Ideally with the possibility to define the day(s) of RSS experiments 5-7 days in advance to maximize chances of catching relevant case study scenarios.
