The data is a fast delivery Meteo product designed for use by meteorological offices, and contains averaged BT and SST at 10 arc minute resolution.
The single MDS comprises the fields of MDS#3 (SST record, 10 arc min cell) of the AST product, with the addition of Average Brightness Temperature (ABT) fields (BT/TOA sea record, 10 arc min cell) to make it more self-contained.
The 3rd reprocessing of ATSR data has been performed; the processing updates that have been put in place and the expected scientific improvements are outlined in full in the User Note for the Third ERS ATSR Reprocessing.
