CM SAF products describe important components of the Earth´s Energy budget and its water cycle, i.e. water vapour, clouds and their properties, precipitation and surface radiation components. The products include pixel based retrievals of geophysical variables along with daily and monthly aggregations, which enable a large variety of applications wrt. climate analysis and monitoring.

|Release of a first aerosol product in CM SAF|
The CM SAF is happy to announce the release its Climate Data Record of Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) derived from the
Aerosols have many impacts on the climate on our planet: direct through the scattering and absorption of radiation, and
An example of monthly mean AOD product is shown in Figure 1Along with the data and the uncertainty estimates, a comprehensive documentation including product user manual,
algorithm descriptions, and validation report is provided. The documents and the data record can be accessed from the
