The EPS-SG IASI-NG is a passive infrared sounder which has the capability to measure the temperature and water vapour profiles of the Earth’s atmosphere. It has a direct heritage from the IASI instrument on board EUMETSAT Polar System (EPS) satellites.

Test data description

The EPS-SG IASI-NG L1C test data, in netCDF format, are available via our ftp site:
https://sftp.eumetsat.int/public/folder/UsCVknVOOkSyCdgpMimJNQ/User-Materials/Test-Data/EPS-SG/IASI-NG/L1C/

They were generated by reformatting the simulated IASI-NG TOA radiance dataset according to EPS-SG Generic Product Format Specification (GPFS) and EPS-SG IASI-NG Level 1C Product Format Specification (PFS).

These data are intended for format familiarisation and system testing.
