High Latitude L2 Sea and Sea Ice Surface TemperatureOperational Near real time product
Level 2 sub-skin Sea and Sea-ice Surface Temperature derived from radiometers on low earth orbit satellites, over northern high latitudes (Poleward of 50N) and provided in full-resolution swath (1 km at nadir), in GHRSST-like netCDF format.
The temperature is retrieved using a multispectral algorithm and a cloud mask, using the PPS software from the NWC SAF.
The product covers the sea and ice areas polewards of latitudes 50N with 3-minute data segments in Level 2, with data processed and archived continuously throughout the day, as they become available (approximately 110 3-minute segments per day per hemisphere). The product is derived from NPP/VIIRS data and includes uncertainties.
