The data from NOAA DBRTN that are currently distributed on EUMETCast are:

  • IASI data from the Metop satellites
  • ATOVS data from the Metop and NOAA-18 and -19 satellites
  • ATMS data from SNPP
  • CrIS data from SNPP

These are all Level 1 data in BUFR format.

As NOAA is now putting all these data on the GTS, we are planning to stop their distribution on EUMETCast on 2 March 2020.

The corresponding GTS bulletin headers are listed below:

  • IASI: INQT01-8 KWBC
  • ATOVS:
    AMSU-A: INAT01-2 KWBC
    MHS: INMT01-5 KWBC
    HIRS: INHT01-2 KWBC
  • SNPP ATMS: INST01-8 KWBC
  • SNPP CrIS: INCT01-8 KWBC
