Description

The CM  SAF Top of Atmosphere Radiation MVIRI/SEVIRI Data Record provides a homogeneous satellite-based climatology of the TOA Reflected Solar (TRS) and Emitted Thermal (TET) radiation in all-sky conditions. The continuous monitoring of these components of the Earth Radiation Budget is of prime importance to study climate variability and change. The MVIRI and SEVIRI instruments on board the METEOSAT First and Second Generation satellites are combined to generate a long Thematic Climate Data Record covering a period of time of 32 years, from 1 February 1983 to 30 April 2015. The TOA radiation products are provided as daily mean, monthly mean and monthly averages of the hourly integrated values (diurnal cycle). The data is provided on a regular grid at a spatial resolution of 0.05°x0.05° and covers the region between ±70° longitude and ±70° latitude. In addition to covering a long time period, the MVIRI/SEVIRI data record is also featured by excellent spatial and temporal samplings.
