Processing Level2P
Start/Stop Date2013-Aug-01 to Present
Short NameMSG02-OSPO-L2P-v1.0
DescriptionThe GHRSST L2P MSG02 SST v1.0 dataset is produced by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) from the Spinning Enhanced Visible and InfraRed Imager (SEVIRI) onboard the Meteosat-9 (MSG2) satellite. It provides the full disk SEVIRI imagery covering the Indian Ocean region from its position at 45.5°E longitude. The L2P SST is produced at approximately 3 km resolution with a 15 minute duty cycle. On June 1, 2022, the Meteosat-9 (MSG2) replaced the Meteosat-8 (MSG1) (MSG01-OSPO-L2P-v1.0) and produced the L2P SST data from June 11. 2022 to the present. This dataset will be updated every 15 minutes as a forward data stream with 3-24 hours nominal latency. Be aware that the granules before Dec. 1, 2022 contain some uncorrected metadata errors.

The SST measurements from SEVIRI are key parameters in study of the weather, atmosphere, climate and ocean environments. Meteosat satellites have been providing crucial data for weather forecasting since 1977.

This L2P SST product which includes Single Sensor Error Statistics (i.e., uncertainty statistics) follows the GHRSST Data Processing Specification (GDS) version 2.0 format guidelines. Please refer to the user guide for more information.
