Daily products, in NetCDF format, are generated by the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) and are available from 2010 onwards.
The processing algorithm makes use of gridded Level 3 brightness temperatures provided by CATDS.
The data is provided in the Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE2-Grid), at 25 km x 25 km resolution.
