Abstract

Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR).

This dataset contains the Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer on ESA ENVISAT satellite (AATSR) Spatially Averaged Sea Surface Temperature Product for Meteo Users. These data are the Level 2 product designed for the use by meteorological offices derived from Level 2 AST product.

The product contains only the sea surface temperature with spatial resolution of 10 arc minutes. It also contains Average Brightness Temperature (ABT) fields, which includes brightness temperature and TOA sea record on the same spatial resolution. Like the AST product this product is derived from, all areas contains data, where the land pixels have empty data, and the coasts containing averages derived only from the sea pixels in the cell. The third reprocessing was done to implement the updated algorithms, processors (the IPF Processor 6.05 from the IPF Processor 6.01), and auxiliary files.
