New Heat Flux products from LSA SAF on EUMETCast soon

New Heat Flux products from LSA SAF will be available on EUMETCast from 28 November.

Thursday, 14 November 2019

These new products, listed below, contribute to characterise the land-atmosphere interactions:

[LSA-304] - Sensible Heat Flux (MH): accounts for the flux of energy associated to the exchange of heat by convection at the Earth-atmosphere interface (soil + vegetation + water bodies).

[LSA-305] - Latent Heat Flux (MLE): accounts for the flux of energy associated to the exchange of water vapour at the Earth-atmosphere interface (soil + vegetation + water bodies). Latent heat flux is the heat flux associated to evapotranspiration.

They have an operational status.
