EARS Cloud Mask - Multimission - Regional Data Service

Abstract:
Cloud Mask products from the Regional NOAA and Metop services (1-minute duration). The EUMETSAT Advanced Retransmission Service (EARS) provides instrument data from the Metop and NOAA satellites collected via a network of Direct Readout stations. The product is generated with the NWC SAF Polar Platform package. Segments of one-minute duration are disseminated to users via EUMETCast and these segments can be concatenated together by users to construct a regional pass.
