  • Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR). This dataset contains the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer on ESA ERS-2 satellite (ATSR-2) Average Surface Temperature (AST) Product. These data are the Level 2 spatially averaged geophysical product derived from Level 1B product and auxiliary data. This data is from the 3rd reprocessing and tagged v3.0.1 There are two types of averages provided: 10 arcminute cells and 30 arcminute cells. All cells are present regardless of the surface type. Hence, the sea (land) cells would also have the land (sea) records even though these would be empty. Cells containing coastlines will have both valid land and sea records; the land (sea) record only contains averages from the land (sea) pixels. The third reprocessing was done to implement the updated algorithms, processors, and auxiliary files.

  • 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 the Level 3 aerosol products from ATSR-2, using the ADV algorithm, version 2.30. Both daily and monthly gridded products are available For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • 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 the Level 2 aerosol products from ATSR-2, using the ORAC algorithm, version 3.02. For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • 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.

  • 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 1.1 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. 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.

  • 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 Analysis Long Term Product consists of daily, spatially complete fields of sea surface temperature (SST), obtained by combining the orbit data from the AVHRR and ATSR ESA SST CCI Long Term Products, using optimal interpolation to provide SSTs where there were no measurements. These data cover the period between 09/1991 and 12/2010. The Version 1.1 data is an update of the Version 1.0 dataset. Version 1.0 of this dataset is cited 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.
