Sunny 2018

Many people felt that the year 2018 was quite dry, warm and sunny in many parts of Europe, including Germany. As the CM SAF is now generating and providing the new Interim Climate Data Records (ICDR), which consistently extend corresponding Thematical Climate Data Records (TCDR) into ‘near-real time’, anomalies can now be analyzed with high confidence.

New operational Interim Climate Data Records (ICDRs) of radiation and cloud properties

The CM SAF is happy to announce the availability of the new SEVIRI-based Interim Climate Data Record (ICDR) processing of cloud and radiation properties. The new ICDRs of clouds and radiation are replacing the previous operational products (EDRs) and are operational continuations of parameters from the Climate Data Records (CDRs) SARAH-2 and CLAAS-2, respectively. The products currently are provided under the status “pre-operational”. More: New operational Interim Climate Data Records (ICDRs) of radiation and cloud properties …
