ROM SAF Product Archive

The ROM SAF Product Archive contains data generated from Radio Occultation (RO) measurements. The archive contains:

  • Near real-time data: refractivity, dry temperature, and 1D-Var (temperature, humidity, pressure, surface pressure) products based on Metop data. For time-critical applications.

  • Offline data: bending angle, refractivity, dry temperature, 1D-Var (temperature, humidity, pressure, surface pressure), tropopause height, and gridded monthly mean products based on Metop data. For non-time-critical applications.

  • Climate Data Records (CDRs): bending angle, refractivity, dry temperature, 1D-Var (temperature, humidity, pressure, surface pressure), tropopause height, and gridded monthly mean products based on Metop, COSMIC, CHAMP, and GRACE data, alltogether covering the time period from September 2001 to December 2016. These data have a high degree of internal consistency, which is important for, e.g., climate science and climate monitoring.

  • Interim Climate Data Records (ICDRs): bending angle, refractivity, dry temperature, 1D-Var (temperature, humidity, pressure, surface pressure), tropopause height, and gridded monthly mean products based on Metop data, covering the time period from January 2017 onward. The ICDR extends a corresponding CDR in time.

  • Demonstration data: prototypes, experimental data sets, etc., based on data from Metop and other RO missions.
