NOAA-20 global data on EUMETCast soon

CrIS and ATMS global data from NOAA-20 will be available on EUMETCast from 28 June.

Thursday, 21 June 2018

CrIS (Cross-track Infrared Sounder) and ATMS (Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder) Sensor Data Records (SDRs) from NOAA-20 will come in addition to the CrIS and ATMS SDRs from SNPP already distributed on EUMETCast.

The NOAA-20 CrIS SDRs will contain the full resolution data, i.e. 2211 channels.

The data will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, on Transponder 2: Channel E2H-TPL-1 (PID: 610, Multicast address: Please note that the data will be transferred to Transponder 1: from 22/08/2018 to 11/09/2018, when they will be available on both Transponders, and from 12/09/2018 they will only be available on Transponder 1. For more details on the transponder change, see the Technical Bulletin.

Users currently subscribed to SNPP ATMS and CrIS data can receive the NOAA-20 ATMS and CrIS data without additional subscription. However, their EUMETCast system needs to be configured to receive data from Transponder 2 for the period up to 22/08/2018. Other users wishing to receive these data should register via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP).
