OSI SAF and EARS ASCAT wind products on the GTS
As announced previously, the Metop-A ASCAT wind products will be discontinued on 15 October (regional EARS winds) an on 15 November (global OSI SAF winds). Since, contrary to Metop-A, the Metop-B and Metop-C ASCAT winds are not distributed on the Global Telecommunication System (GTS), ASCAT winds will not be disseminated any more through the GTS after the retirement of Metop-A. The other means to get the ASCAT winds are EUMETCast, the KNMI FTP server, the EUMETSAT Data Centre and the NASA/JPL PO.DAAC.
We have currently no view on the usage of the ASCAT winds trough the GTS. Therefore we kindly ask you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in case you ingest these products via the GTS and the above mentioned alternatives do not fit your needs.
