Thursday, 19 September 2019

The Metop-C IASI Level 1 data have operational status. They will be added to the regional EARS-IASI L1 service, which comprises 500 selected channels and Principal Component Scores.

The data are currently generated at the Athens, Kangerlussuaq, Lannion, Maspalomas and Svalbard stations.

Note: A geolocation discrepancy (of around 9 km) between the global and regional IASI L1 products, affecting the Svalbard station, has been observed. It is located right at the edge of the scan, on the scan position 30. This issue is currently being investigated.

The data will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, Basic Service, using the following channel:

EUMETSAT Data Channel 1
Multicast address:
PID: 500

Example filename:

They will also be distributed on the GTS:
Bulletin header: IEQX0[1-8] EUMS

Users already subscribed to EARS-IASI L1 via EUMETCast will receive the new Metop-C data automatically. Other users wishing to receive these data on EUMETCast should register via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP).
