  • To answer to the climate community, OSI SAF re-process winds products to generate Thematic Climate Data Records.

    Continuous scatterometer data series exist since 1991 and are processed into climate data records, providing links to the ESA CCI or ERA-CLIM.

    The characteristics and data formats of the products are the same as their near-real time equivalent but the data records are processed with newest algorithms and with fully calibrated input data.

    Here are the first releases of the OSI SAF wind data records :

  • Forecasters and other users are usually interested in the winds near a storm, location or facility, but are faced with collecting information through many “clicks”. Recently, however, the OSI SAF winds team at KNMI has developed a new visualization tool which gives easy access to near-real time OSI SAF winds from all available instruments on one web page in a known meteorological context. Our goal was to create a fast, location-based access, rather than access based on instrument or product.

  • We are pleased to announce that the High Latitude Level 3 Global AMSR Sea Ice concentration product is operational since March 16th 2017.
