METEOSAT Sea Surface Temperature Data
Entry ID: MARF_SST

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: One Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is generated for each segment where
the sea is visible from geostationary orbit. This excludes land
segments, and those with continuous cloud cover during the period of
observation. It is estimated that there are typically 1200 data points
per run with each segment containing only one result. Assuming 1200
results per run the size of the SST product is approximately 135
kbytes. The SST product is generated twice daily, for synoptic hours
00 and 12 UTC.
