EUMETSAT Polar System-Second Generation (EPS-SG) simulated IASI-NG Level 1D test data are now available for user familiarisation.
Thursday, 19 December 2019
IASI-NG (Infrared Atmospheric Sounder Interferometer — New Generation) has a direct heritage from the IASI instrument on board EUMETSAT Polar System (EPS) satellites. IASI-NG will ensure continuity to EPS Infrared Atmospheric Sounder mission, with improved spectral and radiometric performances.
Test data description
The test data are available here:
The IASI-NG L1D test data set is generated using the IASI-NG-L1D-IPP (Prototype processor) using L1C test data as input. The L1D test data contain in netCDF format the same information as the L1C data, but the radiances are compressed using Principal Component analysis. The data format is explained in the Product Format Specification document, made available along with the test data.
These test data are intended for format familiarisation and system testing.
