Metop-C data will be added to the following regional services:

  • EARS-ATOVS (MHS and AMSU-A)
  • EARS-AVHRR
  • EARS-ASCAT

Notes:

  • Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-IASI service at a later stage
  • Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-NWC service when Metop-C is declared the prime operational Metop spacecraft, at which time the Metop-C data will replace the Metop-B data in the EARS-NWC service.

EUMETCast distribution

The data will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, Basic Service, using the following channel:

EUMETSAT Data Channel 1
Multicast address: 224.223.222.1
PID: 500

In addition, the Metop-C EARS-ASCAT data will be distributed on EUMETCast Africa (as with Metop-A and Metop-B EARS-ASCAT), using the following channel:

Channel: A1C-RDS-1
Multicast address: 224.223.225.2
PID: 100

Example filenames are provided in the table below:

GTS distribution

Metop-C EARS-ATOVS and EARS-ASCAT data will also be distributed on the GTS, as is the case for the Metop-A and Metop-B data:

Services Bulletin Headers
EARS-ATOVS AMSU-A: IEAX [01-05] EUMS YYGGgg
MHS: IEMX [01-05] EUMS YYGGgg
EARS-ASCAT Ocean Surface Winds at 25 km: ISXN0[1-6] EHDB YYGGgg
Coastal Winds at 12.5 km: ISXN1[1-6] EHDB YYGGgg

Users already subscribed to the above regional services via EUMETCast will receive the Metop-C regional data automatically. Other users wishing to receive these data on EUMETCast should register via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP).
