22 July 2022
31 January 2019
These products have full disc coverage and are enhanced versions of the PR-OBS-3A and PR-OBS-5A products, respectively, which have European coverage.
P-IN-SEVIRI (PR-OBS-3B): Precipitation rate at ground by GEO/IR supported by LEO/MW (ID: H03B)
The product is derived from instantaneous precipitation maps generated by IR images over full-disc. The data are acquired from operational geostationary satellites ‘calibrated’ by precipitation measurements from MW images in sun-synchronous orbits. For more information, see http://hsaf.meteoam.it/description-h03b.php
Example filename: S-HSAF-h03B_20181210_2345_fdk.grb.gz
Note: This product is intended to replace the Meteosat 0° MPE (Multi-Sensor Precipitation Estimate) product in 2019. More information on this will be communicated in due course.
P-AC-SEVIRI (PR-OBS-5B): Accumulated precipitation at ground by blended MW and IR (ID: H05B)
The product is derived from precipitation maps generated by merging MW images over full-disc. The data are acquired from operational sun-synchronous satellites and IR images from geostationary satellites.
For more information, see http://hsaf.meteoam.it/description-h05b.php
Example filename: S-HSAF-h05B_20181211_0000_03_fdk.grb.gz
Both products will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe and EUMETCast Africa:
EUMETCast Europe: Channel SAF-Global (PID: 300, Multicast address: 22.214.171.124)
EUMETCast Africa: Channel A1C-SAF-5 (PID: 100, Multicast address: 126.96.36.199)
