Access to data
You can access OSI SAF products through the following means:
- OSI SAF FTP servers and Thredds,
- EUMETSAT Data Center (EDC).
You can discover and visualise OSI SAF products through :
- EUMETSAT product navigator,
- OSI SAF quicklooks
Some OSI SAF products are also redistributed by:
- Copernicus Data Stores : CMEMS, C3S
Please look at each product description on the OSI SAF web site to see where you can find it and in which format.
OSI SAF FTP servers and Thredds
The OSI SAF production is based on three subsystems. You can find
- Wind products on the wind FTP server (hosted by KNMI)
- High latitudes sea surface temperature, sea ice and radiative fluxes products on the HL FTP server (hosted by MET Norway)
- Other sea surface temperature and radiative fluxes on the LML FTP server (hosted by Ifremer). See Data tree on LML FTP server
To access the wind FTP server (hosted by KNMI), you need credentials (please request them to email@example.com)
To access the LML FTP server (hosted by Ifremer), you need credentials (they are provided on request, after registration on OSI SAF web site)
If you cannot use the FTP protocol, a HTTPS access has been implemented on Ifremer server.
Thredds accesses are also available on HL server and LML server (see each product page for direct link).
It allows users to access data through OpenDAP. WMS access is also available for all gridded and geostationary products (refer to each product page).
EUMETCast is a multi-service dissemination system based on standard Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) technology. It uses commercial telecommunication geostationary satellites to multi-cast files (data and products) to a wide user community. EUMETCast also delivers a range of third-party products.

EUMETSAT Data Centre
The EUMETSAT Data Centre provides a long-term archive of data and generated products from EUMETSAT, which can be ordered online.

EUMETSAT Product Navigator
The EUMETSAT Product Navigator is the catalogue for all EUMETSAT data and products, including third-party products disseminated via EUMETCast.
EUMETView is an Online Map Service (OMS) that provides these visualisations through a customisable web user interface (WebUI) and an enhanced set of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard APIs.
Redistribution of OSI SAF products
Some OSI SAF products are also redistributed via external services.
NASA JPL Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center
A lot of wind and SST products are redistributed at JPL/PO.DAAC.
Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service
Some sea ice products are redistributed by the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service.
Copernicus Climate Change Service
Some sea ice products are redistributed by the Copernicus Climate Change Service.
