MHS Microwave Humidity Sounder Climate Data Record Release 1 - Metop and NOAA

Abstract:
Release 1 of the Fundamental Climate Data Record (FCDR) of the Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS) onboard NOAA satellites N18 and N19 and EUMETSAT satellites Metop-A and Metop-B. The FCDR provides recalibrated brightness temperatures with detailed uncertainty estimates and error correlation information. The FCDR was generated in the EU Horizon2020 Fidelity and uncertainty in climate data records from Earth Observations (FIDUCEO) project and as further elaborated in the Product User Guide, the FCDR files are provided in FIDUCEO EASY netCDF4 formats.
