The GERB Data



June 2022

As part of the MSG2 payload, the GERB1 instrument is now operational over the Western part of the Indian Ocean (subsatellite longitude of 45.5° East). The GERB1 Indian Ocean record starts on 9th May 2022 and is processed in near real time with the version tag V007.

Data available for evaluation via the ROLSS:

As illustration, the HR solar (left) and thermal (right) fluxes on 10 May 2022 at 09:00 UTC.

March 2020

Publication of 2 papers in “Remote Sensing” describing the TOA radiation products from AVHRR, one for the shortwave, one for the longwave. These works will be basis to future release of TOA radiation products in the Climate Monitoring SAF CLARA-A3 Climate Data Record.
