Thursday, 09 April 2020
NOAA recently announced that the SNPP Atmospheric Motion Vector products in the heritage 3-10-014 BUFR sequence, currently disseminated by EUMETSAT, will be terminated in mid-June 2020. As a result, on 27 May EUMETSAT will switch to disseminating the corresponding SNPP AMV products using the 3-10-077 BUFR encoding sequence.
The WMO endorsed this sequence in November 2018, detailed information can be found in the WMO codes document.
Sample SNPP AMV files using the new BUFR sequence are available on our FTP server: ftp://ftp.eumetsat.int/pub/OPS/out/test-data/Test-data-for-External-Users/SNPP_VIIRS_AMV_May2020/
