Switch from Meteosat-10 to Meteosat-11 for sea surface temperature (SST) and radiative fluxes (SSI, DLI)

Cécile Hernandez's picture
On 20 February 2018, Meteosat-10 from the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) will be replaced by Meteosat-11 as operational satellite in the position 0° (more details)
This will impact the following products :
There will be no parallel distribution of OSI SAF products based on the two satellites : the products made with Meteosat-11 (OSI-206-a, OSI-303-a, OSI-304-a) will replace the products made with Meteosat-10 on 20 February 2018 without being fully validated. Nevertheless we hope that the initial processing of Meteosat-11, satellite of the same series as Meteosat-10, will be of similar quality as the one currently performed with Meteosat-10 data.
These products will be distributed with a status "operational" and a file_quality_level 2 (suspect : occasional problems) until a scientific validation report is available.

The product user manuals will be updated and we will inform you.
