Validation report on SST based on Meteosat-11 and GOES-16 now available

Cécile Hernandez's picture
The OSI SAF Steering Group has authorised the operational distribution of the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) based on GOES-16 (OSI-207-a).
From 18 December 2018, this SST product based on GOES-16 will become operational.
A Scientific Validation report on Sea Surface Temperature (SST) based on Meteosat-11 and GOES-16 data is now available to users.
As a consequence, from 18 December 2018, the global attribute file_quality_level, in the NetCDF files, will be henceforth set to 3 (excellent : no known problems).
Moreover, the values of  Sensor Specific Error Statistic (SSES) are going to be updated in the variables sse_bias and sses_standard_deviation.
Impacted products :

[OSI-206-a] Meteosat Sea Surface Temperature

There is no change in the way the products are being distributed.
