Douglas,

When I first read that I took it as just ATOVS data - the sounder data - but you make me wonder whether it's AVHRR image data as well? The full-orbit Metop data will still be available, I think, as it relies on Svalbard and (when possible) Antarctic stations. It doesn't mention which satellites, either, so one assumes all satellites in the EARS service.

Cheers,
David

You might well be right David. I looked at the link and saw the word AVHRR but it is the AVHRR derived cloud mask. Those datas are all interlinked so I wonder what is behind the decision. Interesting.
