What are the data formats provided by CM SAF?
All operational products are available as HDF5-files. Our climate datasets as, e.g., the SSM/I-based HTW product are provided in netcdf-format.
As many users are interested to receive the data in different formats or projections, CM SAF offers a basic set of conversions/transformations on its products by integrating some cdo functionalities into our Web User Interface. Besides the pure conversion of CM SAF HDF5-files into NetCDF format, we offer the opportunity for interpolation to a regular latitude/longitude grid and/or selection of sub-domains.
