EUMETSAT Polar System-Second Generation (EPS-SG) simulated VII (METimage) Level-2 test data are now available for user familiarisation.
Thursday, 18 June 2020
The EPS-SG Visible Infrared Imager (METimage) will provide continuity to the AVHRR series on board the Metop and NOAA satellites, and VIIRS on board NOAA satellites.
Test data description
The test data are available here:
The METimage L2 test data are generated using the in-house Multi Satellite Prototype Processor as an example for nominal Near Real-Time global/regional processing of VII L2 products.
The data, in netCDF format, comprise the following:
L2 product containing:
- Total Precipitable Water product (from visible/near-IR observations).
- Total Precipitable Water product (IR observations).
- Cloud optical and microphysical properties, cloud Liquid/Ice Water Path (LWP, IWP) and Volcanic Ash (VA) product.
- Atmospheric Motion Vector (AMV) product.
Corresponding file is VII-L2.tar.gz and associated checksum file is VII-L2.md5.
L2 Cloud Mask product.
Corresponding file is VII-L2CM.tar.gz and associated checksum file is VII-L2CM.md5.
These test data are intended for format familiarisation and system testing.
