Fire Radiative Power Gridded (FRPGRID-R)

Data Record for period 2004-2015

 

Product Description

The MSG mission (in operations since 2004) already provides a relatively long time series of VIS and IR observations over the full Earth Disk centred at 0º. The full archive of MSG/SEVIRI data was reprocessed to provide the user comunity a consistent, homogeneous and continuous Data Record of the hourly Fire Radiative Power Gridded (FRPGrid) for the period 2004-2015. 

This Data Record was obtained with the best version of its equivalent NRT product (FRPGrid) which can also complement the time series from 2016 onwards.

 

Product Documentation

The characteristics and file format of this demonstration Data Record are the same as its correspondent NRT product. Thus documented by the common Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD), Product User Manual document (PUM) and Product Output Format document (POF) documents. The validation results for this Data Record are available in the (VR) document.
