The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the public release of the GHRSST Level-2P NOAA MSG01/02/04 Sea Surface Temperature (SST) v1.0 datasets.

This release comprises three L2P SST v1.0 datasets derived from the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) sensor on Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) Satellites -1, -2, and -4 by the NOAA Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO). The MSG-1, -2 and -4 are also known as Meteosat-8, -9, and -11. The MSG L2P SST provides a full disk SEVIRI imagery on the native swath grid at approximately 3 km resolution with a 15 minute duty cycle. Both MSG01 and MSG02 cover the Indian Ocean region from the position at 45.5°E longitude, while MSG04 (and MSG03, published) cover the Atlantic Ocean region from the position at 0.0°E longitude. The three SST measurements provide the temporal coverage from 09/18/2018 to 06/01/2022, 06/11/2022 to the present, and 09/10/2018 to 03/24/2023 for MSG01, 02, and 04 respectively. They are formatted in netCDF and fully compliant with GHRSST Data Processing Specification (GDS) version 2.0.

The datasets are described and discoverable via the PO.DAAC dataset information pages. Users are encouraged to download the data with podaac-data-subscriber.
