Metop-C EARS regional data to be available soon

Metop-C EARS regional data will start being distributed from 29 August.

Thursday, 22 August 2019

Metop-C data will be added to the following regional services:

  • EARS-ATOVS (MHS and AMSU-A)
  • EARS-AVHRR
  • EARS-ASCAT

Notes:

  • Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-IASI service at a later stage
  • Metop-C data will be added to the EARS-NWC service when Metop-C is declared the prime operational Metop spacecraft, at which time the Metop-C data will replace the Metop-B data in the EARS-NWC service.

EUMETCast distribution:

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

EUMETSAT Data Channel 1
Multicast address: 224.223.222.1
PID: 500

In addition, the Metop-C EARS-ASCAT data will be distributed on EUMETCast Africa (as with Metop-A and Metop-B EARS-ASCAT), using the following channel:

Channel: A1C-RDS-1
Multicast address: 224.223.225.2
PID: 100
