MERSI - Feng-Yun - 3 - Regional Data Service

Abstract:
The EARS-MERSI service will provide the 1km resolution product of the MERSI-2 (Medium Resolution Spectral Imager – 2) instruments onboard the CMA’s FY-3 satellite series, starting with FY-3D which is the first satellite of the FY-3 series carrying the MERSI-2 instrument. MERSI-2 is a combination of the MERSI-1 (20 channels) and the VIRR (Visible and Infra-Red Radiometer) (5 channels) instruments onboard FY-3A, -3B and -3C, and thus has 25 channels in total. It has 2048 pixels across-track and ~400 lines in a 1-minute segment. The data will be processed to level-1 using the CMA provided processing package (FY3_IPP). As with the AVHRR and VIIRS regional services, we will provide 1-minute segments removing overlaps between stations. There are 2 files per 1-minute segment.
