Description

Granule metadata service Retrieves the metadata of a granule(s) in PO.DAAC's catalog. This service can be invoked in two different ways.

1. Retrieve metadata in ISO-19115 for one given granule.

datasetId or shortName parameter is required along with granuleName and format : iso.

Example :

https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/ws/metadata/granule?datasetId=PODAAC-GHMG2-2PO01&granuleName=20120912-MSG02-OSDPD-L2P-MSG02_0200Z-v01.nc&format=iso


2. Retrieve metadata for list of granules archived within the last 24 hours in Datacasting format.

datasetId or shortName parameter is required along with format equals to datacasting. itemsPerPage, startTime, and endTime are optional

Example :

https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/ws/metadata/granule?format=datacasting&shortName=ASCATA-L2-25km&itemsPerPage=20

Please contact us if there are any discrepancies or inaccuracies found.

      	The Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellites  are spin stabilized
        geostationary satellites operated by the European Organization for the
        Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) to provide accurate
        weather monitoring data through its primary instrument the Spinning
        Enhanced Visible and InfraRed Imager (SEVIRI), which has the capacity to
        observe the Earth in 12 spectral channels. Eight of these channels are
        in the thermal infrared, providing among other information, observations
        of the temperatures of clouds, land and sea surfaces at approximately
        5 km resolution with a 15 minute duty cycle. This Group for High
        Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) dataset produced by the
        US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
        National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS)
        is derived from the SEVIRI instrument on the second MSG satellite
        (also known as  Meteosat-9) that was launched on 22 December 2005.
        Skin sea surface temperature (SST) data are calculated from the infrared
        channels of SEVIRI at full resolution every 15 minutes. L2P data products
        with Single Sensor Error Statistics (SSES) are then derived following
        the GHRSST-PP Data Processing Specification (GDS) version 1.5.

        	The Spinning Enhanced Visible and InfraRed Imager (SEVIRI)  has the
            capacity to observe the Earth in 12 spectral channels. Eight of
            these channels are in the thermal infrared, providing among other
            information, observations of the temperatures of clouds, land and
            sea surfaces at approximately 5 km resolution with a 15 minute duty
            cycle.
