The EPS-SG MWI is a conically scanning radiometer, capable of measuring thermal radiance emitted by the Earth, in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum, providing cloud and precipitation products and all weather surface imagery.
The EPS-SG ICI is a conically scanning millimetre/sub-millimetre wave radiometer providing information on ice clouds.
Test data description
The test data, in netCDF format, are available via our ftp site:
- MWI Level 1B Spectral Radiance product
- ICI Level 1B Spectral Radiance product
- MWI-ICI Level 2 product providing cloud and atmospheric parameters
Tar files with associated checksum files are provided.
These data are intended for format familiarisation and system testing.
Documentation available via ftp
