20 April 2021
08 April 2021
The product, LSA-004, is an upgraded version of the 15-minute MSG Land Surface Temperature (MLST) product (LSA-001).
LSA-004 brings the following changes:
- An extra data-layer quantifying the directional effects on LST, namely: an estimation of the difference between the LST of each scene/pixel as viewed by SEVIRI/MSG with respect to what would be measured by a nadir-only sensor.
- The geographical region will be the full MSG-Disk instead of the former geographical regions (Euro, NAfr, SAfr and SAme).
- The HDF5 output files are internally compressed.

The LSA-004 and the LSA-001 will be distributed in parallel for a two-month period, after which the LSA-001 will be discontinued (an announcement for this will be issued in due course).
The LSA-004 will be distributed on EUMETCast, as follows:
Multicast address: 184.108.40.206
Multicast address: 220.127.116.11
Multicast address: 18.104.22.168
