Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer Sea Surface Temperature

IDENTIFICATION
DescriptionUpdated on 20/06/2017 following L2Pcore product update : greater yield of useful retrievals (essentially of quality class 3) are now available at mid and high latitudes + two extra experimental fields : dust cloud index, "obs minus calc" (OmC) which is used to stratify the quality of the L2P SST retrievals.
