Re: Confused about Metop

Heiko Schellhorn


Since the demise of METOP-A data I am a bit confused
I thought METOP-A data was transmitted on HVS1 EH1-EPS-10 but I am finding files such as AVHR_xxx_1B_M02_20211115091903Z_20211115092203Z_N_O_20211115105903Z in the folder
I thought M02 files were METOP-B and M03 files were METOP-C >
Have I missed something
Short before launch Eumetsat recognized a problem with the satellite and therefore launched the already assembled second satellite in the row M02 formerly planned as Metop-B now became Metop-A.

After repair Metop-A (M01) was launched as Metop-B

Best wishes
