New LSA SAF radiative flux product on EUMETCast soon
The new LSA SAF Total and Diffuse Downward Surface Shortwave Flux product will be available from 20 May.
21, September 2020
This new product (acronym: MDSSFTD, Product ID: LSA-207) is an instantaneous estimate of the total Downwelling Surface Shortwave radiative Flux (DSSF) in W/m2 and the fraction of the diffuse flux component to the total flux.
It is an upgrade of the LSA-SAF MDSSF (LSA-201), which is planned to be discontinued in six months. It is available every 15 minutes, while the LSA-201 is generated every 30 minutes.
The product currently has pre-operational status.
It will be distributed on EUMETCast as follows:
Multicast address: 188.8.131.52
Multicast address: 184.108.40.206
Example filename: S-LSA_-HDF5_LSASAF_MSG_MDSSFTD_MSG-Disk_202004192345.bz2
