EUMETSAT has reprocessed the Metop-A ASCAT level 1b data record up to March 2014 using uniform
calibration settings and one single processing software version. This data record has been
used as input to reprocess the winds.
Reprocessed Metop-A L2 25 km and 12.5 km (coastal) winds Climate Data Records (CDR) have been
created covering the period from January 2007
until March 2014. Scatterometer data have been collocated with ECMWF ERA-Interim
winds and scatterometer level 2 wind products have been created at 25 km
(doi:10.15770/EUM_SAF_OSI_0006) and 12.5 km
(doi:10.15770/EUM_SAF_OSI_0007) swath grids.
The reprocessed data, in BUFR and NetCDF format, are available online from the
(EUMETSAT Data Centre) after registration.
