Metop ASCAT 5.7 km WindsDemonstrational : we welcome very much your feedback. Near real time product
The OSI SAF ASCAT winds from Metop-B are available on a high resolution swath grid size of 5.7 km as a demonstration product, parallel to the existing operational 25 km and 12.5 km products. Several users have asked for a higher resolution product and we welcome very much your feedback if you are interested to evaluate the products. Based on the feedback we will consider whether or not a future operational status is useful for these products. The products are disseminated in BUFR and NetCDF format and they are available only on the KNMI FTP server, not through EUMETCast.
