ATOVS Sounding Products - Metop

Abstract:
The Advanced TIROS Operational Sounder (ATOVS), in combination with the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), covers the visible, infrared and microwave spectral regions and thus has a wide range of applications: supplementing the retrieval of vertical temperature and humidity profiles, cloud and precipitation monitoring, sea ice and snow cover detection as well as surface temperature determination. ATOVS is composed of the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit A, the Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS) and the High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS/4).
