Temporary unknown quality for products based on GOES-East

Cécile Hernandez's picture
From today (Tuesday, not Thursday) 2nd April around 09:00 UTC, the OSI SAF processing will use input data at only H+00 and H+30.
The frequency of the hourly products remain unchanged: the products will still be distributed every one hour.
We expect no interruption of the production but the products will be built with different input data from usual.
In each file, the Global Attribute file_quality_level will be set to 0 (unknown quality) instead of 3 (excellent).
From tomorrow Wednesday 3rd of April around 10:00 UTC, the processing will come back to nominal.

The OSI SAF impacted products are :

  • [OSI-207-a] GOES-East Sea Surface Temperature
  • [OSI-305-a] GOES-East Downward Longwave Irradiance
  • [OSI-306-a] GOES-East Surface Solar Irradiance
