The webinar provides:

  • an overview of instrument and measurement principles;
  • details on product generation, product characteristics, and expected performance;
  • user-relevant information about data formats, test datasets, dissemination, and
  • application perspectives.

The event describes the new spectral channels and improvements in resolution and performance over the MSG SEVIRI, Metop AVHRR and other heritage sensors. This Webinar focuses on product generation activities at EUMETSAT Central Facility.

With the User Preparation Webinars, EUMETSAT aims to raise technical and scientific awareness among users, trigger software and algorithm developments for exploiting products, and stimulate the development of applications.

Data from the geostationary MTG Flexible Combined Imager on the MTG-I satellite are expected to become available in 2023, and from METimage on Metop-SG A in 2024.

The Q&A session is on www.slido.com, event code #NG-Imagers.
