The Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CM SAF)
The Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring generates, archives and distributes widely recognised high-quality satellite-derived products and services for climate monitoring in operational mode. More : The Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CM SAF)
The CM SAF is happy to announce the availability of the new SEVIRI-based Interim Climate Data Record (ICDR) processing
The new ICDR SEVIRI products are available from beginning of 2018 onwards and will be regularly delivered with a timeliness
Example of usage:
In Europe, compared to the climatological values, May 2018 was dominated by more clouds and less solar radiation in the
UP / June 2018
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
