The IASI Sulphur Dioxide BUFR product from AC SAF will be updated on 14 January 2019.
Thursday, 29 November 2018
The product (IASI Sulphur dioxide — Metop) will be updated from WMO BUFR Master Table Version 19 to 21. This fixes a bug in the length of the encoded descriptor for sulphur dioxide. As the local table version number will remain the same, users of BUFRDC will need to create a combined EUMETSAT local table version 19-1 in order to process the IASI SO2 BUFR product.
The relevant chapter of the Migration Guide (Ref: EUM/SEP/TEN/18/1004055) which describes the migration of the SO2 descriptor is 3.6: Global descriptor with different attributes than in WMO tables.
