First Satellite Application Facility (SAF) Products available via the EUMETSAT Archive

This first set of metadata describes the Off-Line Total Column/Ozone and Nitrogen dioxide from the Ozone Monitoring SAF, and the Land Surface Temperature (LST) and Downwelling Surface Longwave Fluxes (DSLF) from the Land Surface Analysis SAF.

Further improvements will follow with the integration of the remaining product metadata from the Land Surface Analysis and Ozone Monitoring SAF as well as metadata describing products from the other SAFs; the Climate Monitoring SAF, the GRAS SAF and the Ocean and Sea Ice SAF. In the case of the Ocean and Sea Ice SAF, the products themselves will be archived as well as the metadata.
