        abstract:  The mapped data derived from AVHRR (Advanced High Resolution Radiometer) onboard NOAA and Metop satellites is divided into files for CoastWatch regions of interest. Each file contains multiple data variables stored using the HDF-4 Scientific Data Sets (SDS) model. The product contents are channel 1 albedo, channel 2 albedo, channel 3a albedo, channel 3 brightness temperature, channel 4 brightness temperature, channel 5 brightness temperature, moisture corrected sea-surface-temperature, 8-bit CLAVR ocean cloud mask, 2-bit CLAVR-X cloud mask, satellite zenith angle, solar zenith angle, relative azimuth angle and 8-bit graphics layers. The pixel resolution is 1.47 km/pixel except for synoptic region in Alaska (5 km/pixel) and the Great Lakes (1.8 km/pixel).
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.

            description:  Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer A meteorological satellite [instrument] with two bands that is used for large area Earth observation at 1 km spatial resolution. Source: Glossary of GIS and Remote Sensing Terms, University of Vermont. (http://fwie.fw.vt.edu/tws-gis/glossary.htm; last accessed on 09/22/2004). Specifically, this instrument type is to be used to represent AVHRR/1: "There are two series of AVHRR instruments. Built by ITT Aerospace/Optical Division in the mid 1970s, the AVHRR/1 is a four-channel, filter-wheel spectrometer/radiometer (Appendix) while the AVHRR/2, built in the early 1980s, is identical except for the addition of Channel 5."

                code:  AVHRR-3
            type:  AVHRR-3
            description:  Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer-3 The AVHRR-3 is a six channel scanning radiometer providing 3 solar channels in the visible-near infrared region and 3 thermal infrared channels. The AVHRR-3 has two one-micrometer wide channels between 10.3 and 12.5 micrometers. This latest version of AVHRR was first carried on NOAA-15 launched in May 1998 and subsequently in all current NOAA and MetOp platforms. Measuring the same view, this array of diverse wavelengths, after processing, permits multi spectral analysis for more precisely defining hydrologic, oceanographic, and meteorological parameters. Comparison of data from two channels is often used to observe features or measure various environmental parameters. The three channels operating entirely within the infrared band are used to detect the heat radiation from and hence, the temperature of land, water, sea surfaces, and the clouds above them.

Name MetOp-A Country(s) DE: GERMANY Platform Class 65: Orbiting satellite Commissioned Date 2006-10-19 Decommissioned Date 2016 Notes Meteorological operational satellite. 1st flight unit of the EPS programme. Main mission is operational meteorology. Command and Control of MetOp is performed from the EPS Control Room at EUMETSAT Headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Information Source (URL) http://www.wmo-sat.info/oscar/satellites/view/306 Confirmed by NOAA on 2018-08-08. OTHER INFORMATION: The MetOp series of satellites has been developed as part of a joint undertaking between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), whereby MetOp forms the space segment of EUMETSAT's Polar System (EPS). Moreover, MetOp is the European contribution to a new cooperative venture with the American National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) through the Initial Joint Polar Satellite System. MetOp-A is the first of a series of three satellites. Launched: 19 October 2006 Declared operational: 15 May 2007
