CM SAF: Naming Convention
The naming convention of the CM SAF products is described below. It will allow users easier identification of the product’s data sources. The most important identifiers are of course the three-character coding of the product type and the information on the averaging. If the same type of product is generated from different sensors (e.g., SEVIRI and AVHRR), the only way of distinguishing these products by their name is the five-digit code of the data source if all other characteristics are identical.
