  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises Level 3 daily and monthly gridded aerosol products from the ATSR-2 instrument on the ERS-2 satellite, derived using the ADV algorithm, version 2.31. It covers the period from 1995-2003. For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • The ESA Sea Surface Temperature Climate Change Initiative (ESA SST CCI) dataset accurately maps the surface temperature of the global oceans over the period 1991 to 2010 using observations from many satellites. The data provides an independently quantified SST to a quality suitable for climate research. The ESA SST CCI ATSR (Along-Track Scanning Radiometer) Long Term Product Version 1.0 consists of stable, low-bias sea surface temperature (SST) data covering the period 08/1991 - 12/2010. The L3U data product provides these SST data regridded onto a global longitude-latitude grid. Please note, the version 1.0 data described here has now been superseded by the version 1.1 data product as described in Merchant, C. J., Embury, O., Roberts-Jones, J., Fiedler, E., Bulgin, C. E., Corlett, G. K., Good, S., McLaren, A., Rayner, N., Morak-Bozzo, S. and Donlon, C.

  • This dataset collection comprises Ungridded Brightness Temperature (UBT) products from both ATSR-1 and ATSR-2 on the respective ERS-1 & 2 platforms. The ATSR (Along Track Scanning Radiometer) is an imaging radiometer providing images of the Earth from space. The ERS (Earth Resources Satellite) was the first ESA satellite observation programme comprising 2 polar orbiters. The ERS-1 and 2 programmes commenced in 1991 and 1995 respectively with ERS1 ceasing operations in 2000 and ERS-2 in 2011. The UBT data is an ungridded brightness temperature/reflectance product in the SADIST-2 data format. The product contains ungridded, calibrated brightness temperatures or reflectances from all or some of the ATSR-1/ATSR-2 detectors. Although the product remains ungridded, it may optionally contain pixel latitude/longitude positions, and/or pixel X/Y (across-track/along-track) co-ordinates. Ungridded products contain pixels in the ATSR scan geometry. There is a correspondence between the contents of a record and the contents of an ATSR instrument scan. ATSR data is notable in that it incorporated 2 look directions (nadir and forward) to aid in atmospheric correction and also incorporated consistent calibration for each scan/scene. ATSR-1 and 2 data are available at CEDA to any registered UK user with correct authorisation from the ATSR-1/2 Science Team, and NERC Award reference. Non NERC users should have ESA Category 1 clearance. However, users are encouraged to use the ATSR-1/2 in the latest AATSR multimission format in preference to this UBT data. CEDA remains the primary archive for this data.

The data provides an independently quantified SST to a quality suitable for climate research. The ESA SST CCI ATSR (Along-Track Scanning Radiometer) Long Term Product version 1.1 consists of stable, low-bias sea surface temperature (SST) data covering the period 08/1991 - 04/2012. The L3U data product provides these SST data regridded onto a global longitude-latitude grid. The version 1.1 data is an update to the version 1.0 dataset. This dataset is cited in: Merchant, C.

  • The Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSR dataset was generated within the Cloud_cci project (http://www.esa-cloud-cci.org) which was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) as part of the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme (Contract No.: 4000109870/13/I-NB). This dataset is one of the 6 datasets generated in Cloud_cci; all of them being based on passive-imager satellite measurements. This dataset is based on ATSR2 and AATSR (onboard ERS2 and ENVISAT) measurements and contains a variety of cloud properties which were derived employing the Community Cloud retrieval for Climate (CC4CL) retrieval system. The core cloud properties contained in the Cloud_cci ATSR2-AATSR dataset are cloud mask/fraction, cloud phase, cloud top pressure/height/temperature, cloud optical thickness, cloud effective radius and cloud liquid/ice water path. Spectral cloud albedo is also included as experimental product. Level-3C product files contain monthly averages and histograms of the mentioned cloud properties together with propagated uncertainty measures.
