Our Products

The Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CM SAF) develops, produces, archives, disseminates and promotes satellite-observation-based products to support climate monitoring. The product suite mainly covers parameters related to the energy & water cycle and addresses many Essential Climate Variables as defined by GCOS (GCOS 138).

The CM SAF produces the following types of Climate Data Records (CDR), which are time series of measurements of sufficient length, consistency, and continuity to determine climate variability and change:

  • Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDR)
  • Thematic Climate Data Records (TCDR)
  • Interim Climate Data records (ICDR)
  • Environmental Data Records (EDR)

Details on the CDR types and a possible workflow are provided here:

The products are available at the Web User Interface.
