Minor deterioration of the SST bias correction in some LML SST products based on Metop/AVHRR

Due to an issue in the supply of input data, the processing chain for LML Sea Surface Temperature products has not been fed with our internal Saharan Dust Index (SDI), but only with Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) from NAAPS from 2021-02-24 to yesterday 2021-03-03.

As a consequence, the OSI SAF SST bias correction has not been as good as usual.

Impacted products:

OSI-201-b Global Metop Sea Surface Temperature

OSI-204-b Full resolution Metop Sea Surface Temperature metagranules (Metop-B)

OSI-204-c Full resolution Metop Sea Surface Temperature metagranules (Metop-C)
